Giulio Cesare in Egitto
Dramma per musica in three acts
Conductor: Gianluca Capuano
Production: David Livermore
with Cecilia Bartoli as Cleopatra
The production by Davide Livermore, conducted by Gianluca Capuano, is a stellar cast, presenting the opera which was celebrated at its world premiere in 1724 at London’s King’s Theatre. This opera has not been heard at Vienna State Opera for almost 65 years, which makes this a unique opportunity to see this Baroque jewel in an outstanding production.
