CLASSIC BAROQUE GEM | THRILLING VOCAL FIREWORKS | A STORY FOR THE AGES
Julius Caesar arrives to conquer Egypt—or will Cleopatra conquer him? Intrigue and passion abound in Handel’s greatest opera, which traces the epic political struggle and the transcendent love story that ignited an empire and anointed a queen. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this Baroque gem in a fully-realized, grand-scale installation that only Boston Lyric Opera can create.

Featuring David Trudgen, Jacquelyn Stucker, Wallis Giunta, Renée Tatum, Siman Chung, David McFerrin, and Gina Perregrino
