Guilio Cesare

Wow! It's unusual that I put up on this blog anything from the media but some excerpts I found yesterday from Handel's opera Giulio Cesare (Julius Caesar) really bowled me over. See below:

Watch Glyndebourne - Giulio Cesare on Plushmusic

Sheer soaring genius! Anne is going to Glyndebourne this year so I hope it is Giulio Cesare that she sees.

Having a counter tenor depict one of the greatest military geniuses of the ancient world is terminally weird but it works -- thanks mainly to Handel's music, I think
