Synopsis

Opera in Three Acts.  One of the greatest love stories of all time is unveiled as Emperor Julius Cesar is in hot pursuit of his enemy, Pompeo in Eqypt. There he encounters Cleopatra and his thoughts of vengeance are transformed to the passions of love. In this heroic and romantic theatrical work, where all sorts of plot twists are possible, the voices, and nothing but the voices, reign supreme, caressing the words, soaring in a whirlwind of dizzying musical themes that intoxicate the senses.
