Giulio Cesare is undoubtedly one of Handel’s finest works, but it is more than just a historical portrayal; the main focus is love. Whereas in most operas political clashes thwart the expression of love and other passions, here, various matters of State prompt the emergence and development of the tenderest feelings. The librettist delights in placing ever more obstacles in the path of love, and Handel responds with some of his finest arias. A dream team experienced in working with this type of repertoire has been assembled to bring you an ode to love with panache and verve.
