Join a live rehearsal for Giulio Cesare
Below you can watch our latest Facebook Live video, a sneak peek into a rehearsal for Handel’s Giulio Cesare, directed by David McVicar.
The cast, including Sarah Connolly as Cesare and Christophe Dumaux as Tolomeo, are running through ‘Va tacito’, which is one of the absolute highlights of the opera, with choreographer Andrew George.
In the scene we see the final confrontation between Cesare and Tolomeo. Cesare is firmly in control, positioning himself as a silent and furtive hunter, moving in on his prey – Cleopatra’s villainous brother.
Here’s a clip of the same number from the 2005 production:
