We just stumbled upon these amazing photographs of the Met’s sumptious production of Handels Giulio Cesare! Pictured below in the leading roles are David Daniels as Cesar, Natalie Dessay as Cleopatra and Alice Coote as Sesto.
From the press release:
This performance is from the Met premiere of a staging which has been praised for its clever blend of dramatic storytelling and witty touches. David McVicar’s production premièred at Glyndebourne Festival to tremendous critical acclaim. It has been revived there three times and had its American premiere at the Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2007.
