Description
Here is the story of Caesar (countertenor Flavio Oliver) and Cleopatra (Elena de la Merced) as only Handel could present it: in music of surpassing beauty and variety. Recorded live in 2004 at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu, this memorable production soars on every level: ravishing singing, fine orchestral playing, and dramatic flair.

"Perhaps the star of the evening is contralto Eva Podles's Cornelia; her superbly creamy act 1 lament is incredibly touching…. De la Merced's 'Non disperar' is light and simply gorgeous, as is her second act aria, 'Se pietà di me non senti.’… She seems to save up her expressive energies, though, for the most famous aria from this opera, the act 3 'Piangerò la sorte mia.' Even on DVD it sends shivers down the back…. Jordi Domènech's rendition of Tolomeo's act 2 aria, 'Sì, spietata, il tuo rigore' is dispatched with great power, as is everything he touches here. Maite Beaumont is a lovely Sesto with great legato. There is proper fury in her aria ('Svegliatevi nel core'), and great drama to 'L'aure che spira'…. Musically, Handel's magnificent opera is done proud."—Fanfare
