Giulio Cesare (Julius Caesar) by Handel – Mon 18 May
One of Handel’s most celebrated operas: a story of passion and revenge. The opera follows the events surrounding Julius Caesar’s conquest of Egypt, as well as his uneasy alliance and romance with Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.
Così fan tutte by Mozart – Tue 19 May
Mozart’s combination of glorious music and farcical comedy make Così fan tutte an enduring favourite, a story of young love and fidelity. It is in many ways Mozart’s most perfect opera.
Cosi fan tutte will be sung in English, and not Italian as stated in the brochure.
