Giulio Cesare — Glyndebourne

http://arts.guardian.co.uk/reviews/story/0,,1838690,00.html

Andrew Clements [Guardian, 7 August 2006]

New last summer, David McVicar's irrepressibly camp staging of Handel's Egyptian epic was Glyndebourne's biggest success for years, and it's no surprise that the company has brought it back as soon as possible. McVicar has supervised the revival, with a cast that is almost entirely new to their roles. Only two of the original team return: Danielle de Niese to repeat her all-singing, all-dancing appearance as Cleopatra, and Rachid Ben Abdeslam is once again the fey Nireno.
