Katie Derham explores love and politics in Handel's opera, Giulio Cesare

In this episode of the Glyndebourne podcast, we explore the tangled webs of politics and love in Handel’s Giulio Cesare with contributions from top mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, William Fitzgerald, Professor of Latin Language & Literature at King’s College London and Suzanne Aspden, associate professor of music at the University of Oxford.

Presenter: Katie Derham
Produced by Katherine Godfrey for Whistledown Productions for Glyndebourne Festival 2018

The music in this podcast is from the Glyndebourne production of Giulio Cesare, directed by David McVicar, which was recorded as a co-production between Glyndebourne and Opus Arte in 2006. The musical edition by Winton Dean and Sarah Fuller is performed by arrangement with Oxford University Press.
