In 48 BC, Rome has just taken Egypt. Upon arrival in the country, Julius Caesar finds himself in the midst of a struggle between sibling rulers that begins the destruction of the Roman triumvirate and ends in a great love with Cleopatra, who would become the most successful and beloved ruler in the history of Egypt.

Intense moments of pathos and riotous comedy mixed with some of Handel’s best, most beloved music make Julius Caesar an opera not to be missed.

“CAESAR CAME, SAW, AND CONQUERED.”
