One of Handel’s most celebrated operas: a story of passion and revenge, featuring a treasure trove of great arias with immense dramatic intensity. The opera follows the events surrounding Julius Caesar’s conquest of Egypt, as well as his uneasy alliance and romance with fabled Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.
Handel’s epic opera returns to English Touring Opera in an adapted revival of their widely acclaimed 2017 production, led by ETO’s Artistic Director, James Conway and conductor, Jonathan Peter Kenny who will lead the Old Street Band.
