Caesar and Cleopatra in Frankfurt
Nadja Loschky, director of the Bielefeld Theatre as of this season, is bringing Georg Friedrich Händel's Giulio Cesare in Egitto back to the Frankfurt Opera from 24.03.24 with a new production!
The audience can expect a dramatic event that is both a romantic drama and a political thriller. While the production begins with the idea of reconciliation, it quickly turns into a dramatic tangle of murder and retribution. This is ideal material for Nadja Loschky, whose recent productions have repeatedly thrilled audiences.
The production promises a multitude of motifs, emotions and entanglements, as well as rapid scene changes and multi-layered characters, with a top vocal cast including Pretty Yende as Cleopatra, Lawrence Zazzo as Giulio Cesare and Nils Wanderer as Tolomeo. Etienne Pluss and Irina Spreckelmeyer are responsible for the stage and costumes, with Simone Di Felice conducting.
