Julius Caesar is Handel's best-known and much-loved opera, and deservedly so. It features some very famous arias such as "Piangero, la sorte mia"' "V'adoro, pupille"' and "Da tempeste", all sung by Cleopatra - described by the prominent Handel scholar Winton Dean as "one of the great characters of opera, an immortal sex-kitten whose emotions, if ephemeral, are obsessive while they last". There are no less than eight singing roles in the opera. Hamish Gould, a counter-tenor from Austraila will sing the title role of Julius Caesar. This production will be staged, with a professional orchestra.
