English Touring Opera: Giulio Cesare - Julius Caesar

English Touring Opera returns to Cheltenham with three great operas encompassing love and war, comedy and epic tragedy.

Giulio Cesare, Handel’s retelling of Caesar’s relationship with Cleopatra, is a majestic opera, in which the characters are driven to extreme feelings and actions, and in which the music strikes at the heart.

Joining ETO for this performance will be Cheltenham Choral Society.

Il viaggio a Reims is set in a provincial hotel, where guests from all over Europe are stranded on their way to a coronation. Lost luggage, intrigue, politics and romance all play their part in Rossini’s last Italian opera.

Unusually, each opera is performed on period instruments in partnership with the much-praised Old Street Band.
