Togas are out and glam is in with this Julius Caesar. Set on a 1930s movie soundstage in the enchanted golden age of Hollywood, this Baroque opera comes to life as a big movie musical complete with an art deco Egyptian pyramid, glitzy costumes, and a silver screen Cleopatra.

Revel in the vocal pyrotechnics of Handel’s most famous opera about love and conflict in HGO’s charming production.

Composer: Handel
