Handel's Julius Caesar in Egypt is not only his grandest opera, it is one of the greatest character dramas in music. Reimagining Caesar's historical campaign in Egypt, Handel's ensemble drama features showstoppers for each of the principal characters. Cleopatra and her villainous brother, Ptolemy jockey for the favor of the Roman Emperor while the noble widow Cornelia and her hot-headed son, Sesto seek revenge.
