The triumphant sensation of the 2005 Festival, David McVicar's acclaimed production of Handel's grandest opera returns again, by popular demand, to mark Glyndebourne's contribution to the composer's 250th anniversary celebrations.
Drawing inspiration equally from the British Raj and Bollywood, McVicar's flamboyantly slick and sexy song-and-dance staging veers expertly between black comedy and heartbreaking tragedy as Handel's sumptuous score pours out some of his most exquisitely fashioned, emotionally affecting and sheerly exciting arias.
A powerful cast is led by the two stars of the original staging mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly as the imperious Roman general and soprano Danielle de Niese as the irrepressibly coquettish Cleopatra, ever ready to render unto Cesare whatever it takes to gain control of her kingdom.
The edition by Winton Dean and Sarah Fuller is performed by arrangement with Oxford University Press.
