GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL

Giulio Cesare

One of the Met’s most inventive productions, Sir David McVicar’s vibrant Bollywood-inspired take on Handel’s Baroque masterpiece transports the tale of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra to the age of British imperialism. Countertenor Iestyn Davies portrays the most powerful man in the world, opposite rising soprano Kristina Mkhitaryan as the world’s most alluring queen. On the heels of his show-stopping performance in Akhnaten, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo portrays another Egyptian ruler—Ptolemy, Cleopatra’s brother—and mezzo-sopranos Karen Cargill and Kate Lindsey round out the exceptional cast. Harry Bicket conducts.
