Notes & Reviews:
TDK presents Giulio Cesare, one of Handel's most fascinating and exquisite works on DVD. It was brought to Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu under the direction of Herbert Wernicke, who produced a new adaptation including fragments of other Handel operas such as Rinaldo, Orlando and Tolomeo. This freely-interpreted and updated version does not seek to set the opera in a contemporary context but rather to reveal hidden aspects of the work: its psychology, its history and its politics.Notes & Reviews:
