|Libretto: Nicola Haym - Übertragung ins Englische von Brian Trowell|
Ediert von Sir Charles MacKerras und Noel Davis
Place of recording: From the English National Opera
Dame Janet Baker, in one of her greatest roles, leads a cast of some of Britain?s finest interpeters of baroque opera and their performance under the baton of Sir Charles Mackerras is one of the highest musical excellence. John Copley?s acclaimed English National Opera production was restaged in studio, skilfully using all the technical advantages offered, to create this top quality recording.
The opera was first performed in 1724 at the Haymarket Theatre in London using castrati singers in the heroes' roles. This production follows modern practice in using women in these parts. Dame Janet?s virtuoso role as Julius Caesar has been heralded as a masterful recreation of the music which Handel wrote for the finest singers of his time.
Selected press comments:
"When ENO unveiled their production of Julius Caesar it was justly held as a total triumph. RM Arts moved into Limehouse Studios last summer to film Julius Caesar and took with them virtually the whole original ENO cast. The result is a triumph from start to finish - three hours of musical bliss and visual joy."
