The Peabody Chamber Opera Presents
George Frideric Handel's
Baroque specialist Timothy Nelson returns to Peabody and Theatre Project with a new production of Handel’s Giulio Cesare in Egitto (Julius Caesar in Egypt); the epic and eternal story of power, honor, justice, and vengeance. It is a profound exploration of the fine line separating justice and revenge, defense and terror, martyrdom and annihilation.
Timothy Nelson brings his unique contemporary take on the baroque by setting the opera in the context of the modern struggle between East and West playing out today in the Middle East. Music director is Adam Pearl, with the Baltimore Baroque Band.
