One was the greatest Roman general who ever lived. The other: the beautiful and powerful pharaoh of ancient Egypt. Behold as two of history's most compelling figures, Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, take center stage in George Frideric Handel's larger-than-life magnum opus. Once drawn to each other, these two legendary figures find that the war between their countries is nothing compared to the battles that rage within their hearts. Proclaimed by some as the penultimate example of opera seria, Julius Caesar tells the epic story of one of history's most dramatic and passionate romances.
