Travel through ancient Egypt with Handel's Giulio Cesare. The English Concert, the world’s preeminent Baroque orchestra, visits Omaha for one night only to present the tale of Julius Caesar, the infamous Roman general and dictator. The English Concert and conductor Harry Bicket will be seated onstage, and you will see the interchange between the orchestra, some playing historic Baroque instruments, and the singers. This semi-staged opera will transport you back in time, although the themes of power, love, and politics are timeless.
