Witty, sexy, and tragic post-colonial framing of Handel?s Caesar and Cleopatra tale!

The Guardian

Why See Metropolitan Opera: Giulio Cesare?

The opera that conquered London in Handel?s time comes to the Met in David McVicar's inventive production! The production previously triumphed at its Glyndebourne premiere in 2005 and was praised by The Guardian as a "witty, sexy, and tragic post-colonial framing of Handel's Caesar and Cleopatra tale". McVicar's production incorporates elements of Baroque theater and 19th-century British imperialism to illuminate the opera's ideas of love, war, and empire building.
