Julius Caesar Parts I and II

Overview

Julius Caesar (Giulio Cesare) is Handel’s most celebrated opera, and a real clash of titans on stage. A thrilling story of passion and revenge, it features music so beautiful and characters so strong that English Touring Opera has decided to present it complete, in two intriguing performances.

Don’t miss this exhilaratingly epic drama, featuring the company's partner baroque orchestra The Old Street Band and a first-rate cast including Christopher Ainslie in the title role, Soraya Mafi as Cleopatra and Kitty Whately as Sesto.

Part II: Cleopatra’s Needle

The Battle for the Kingdom of the Nile reaches a crisis, as Pompey’s family is enslaved, Caesar is presumed dead, and Cleopatra is made captive by her brother.

New production, sung in Italian with English surtitles
