Cecilia Bartoli is Cleopatra in Händels Giulio Cesare in Egitto
Cecilia Bartoli returns to the Main Hall of the Concertgebouw! This time as Cleopatra in Handel's opera Giulio Cesare in Egitto. She brings with her the orchestra of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo and great soloists, including the celebrated countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic.
A concert by Cecilia Bartoli is a package deal. You get a big personality, a remarkable voice, an extroverted show and technically difficult pieces, dug up from the corners of the repertoire. She is a phenomenon, she captivates the audience, the audience adores her. Together with the orchestra and soloists from the Op��ra de Monte-Carlo, she will strengthen her bond with the Concertgebouw in Handel's opera Giulio Cesare in Egitto .
Three hundred years ago, Handel wrote just one opera for the Royal Academy season – but what an opera! Giulio Cesare in Egitto was a masterpiece, which established Handel's reputation as the most important opera composer of his time. The musical elaboration of the characters reached a new intensity in this work. The production – characterized by serious arguments between the composer and the famous but difficult singers – had thirteen performances, and was repeated three times in the following years. The opera was Handel's most popular in England and on the continent.
