Description
To stage the opera regarded by many as Handel's most exquisite work, director Herbert Wernicke concentrated on the inherent psychology and politics of the story. In Handel's Giulio Cesare (a far cry from the dark tale of political intrigue conceived by Shakespeare less than a century earlier) Caesar is a heroic figure, rescuing Cleopatra from the clutches of her evil brother. The simplicity of the story enables Handel to concentrate on what he does best: writing both wonderfully emotive arias and complex recitatives, with startling modulations.

"Wernicke finds the human core of the characters and ingeniously blends that element with the fantastic."—New York Metro

"A very enjoyable romp that never really seems to take itself too seriously, despite having plenty of moments of genuine emotion and drama…. The singing is excellent…. The star of the show is Elena de la Merced, whose 'Se pieta di me non senti' is truly gorgeous, as are all of her arias…. Colourful and highly entertaining…. A very grand night out."—MusicWeb International
