Handel: Giulio Cesare

2005 NR

Famed countertenor Andreas Scholl sings the title role of Roman emperor Julius Caesar in this memorable production of Georg Friederich Handel's "Giulio Cesare," staged at the Royal Danish Opera in 2005. Transporting the action from ancient times to the present day, director Francisco Negrin paints a passionate portrait of Caesar's storied romance with Egyptian queen Cleopatra (played by soprano Inger Dam-Jensen).
