Cesare on TV

Can’t believe I forgot about this!

Tomorrow at noon (12:30 in New York), PBS is showing the Metropolitan Opera‘s performance of Händel‘s most beloved opera, Giulio Cesare.  This production, by Sir David McVicar, was imported from Glyndebourne where it premiered in 2005, and it’s a fun one, as the choreographed number above shows.

    • hope you loved it, i know i did! it was great to see the close-ups and all, a great production indeed, and equally enjoyable from the rafters of the Met as on TV! I think the Great Performances from the Met are through for the year, but there may be some other relevant episodes yet to come from elsewhere around the country, so keep an eye out for those…
