The American soprano Danielle de Niese plays Cleopatra and the excellent British mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly plays Giulio Cesare in this Glyndebourne 2005 staging.

In this scene, Cesare and Cleopatra sing their final duet. Cleopatra has just been crowned Queen of Egypt, now part of the Roman Empire, as consort to Roman emperor-general Giulio Cesare.


CLEOPATRA:
"Caro!"

CESARE:
"Bella!"

CLEOPATRA e CESARE:
"Più amabile beltà
mai non si troverà
del tuo bel volto.
In me non splenderà
In te non splendera
né amor né fedeltà
da te disciolto.
da me disciolto."

---

CLEOPATRA:
"My love!"

CESARE:
"My fair one!"

CLEOPATRA and CEASAR:
"A more amiable beauty
Will never be found
Than your fair face.
In me nothing shines.
In you nothing shines
Neither love, nor fidelity,
Apart from you.
Apart from me."


Delightful romantic duet from final act of the multi-award-winning, famous and fabulous, funny and moving production of Handel's "Giulio Cesare in Egitto" by DavidMcVicar, set in late 19th-century colonial Egypt with the Redcoats keeping Cesare's Roman Empire running.

With William Christie directing the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

From Glyndebourne, August 2005.

If you like this, do go and buy the video and get the entire opera! (It's really worth it!)
