About the event

Giulio Cesare (Julius Caesar) is Handel’s most celebrated opera: a thrilling story of passion and revenge set to one of the composer’s most beautiful scores. In this new production we are presenting the opera in full, divided in two parts on consecutive nights.

Part I: The Death of Pompey (Fri 13 October). Having defeated his rival Pompey, can Caesar now survive the machinations of King of Egypt Ptolemy and his sister Cleopatra?

Part II: Cleopatra’s Needle (Sat 14 October). 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.
