Julius Caesar • 2h 26m
The Atlanta Opera Film Studio presents George Frideric Handel's Julius Caesar, the fully-produced opera film created from The Atlanta Opera's 2021 production of the epic baroque opera.
The love affair between Julius Caesar and Cleopatra is given a Baroque flourish in Handel’s masterful work. Loosely based on events during the Roman Civil War around 48 B.C., Caesar arrives in Egypt in pursuit of his enemy, only to fall in love with the beguiling queen–what plays out is an episode of Game of Thrones, in which blood, lust, and the pursuit of power both torments and unites.
