Family version of the opera Giulio Cesare
Casual, comical, clever way to learn
“The family version of the Festival Opera is an annual highlight at the Göttingen International Handel Festival”, writes Jens Wortmann for the Cultural Office. Is it really necessary to add anything to that? Absolutely! In 2022, this highlight promises to get even more dramatic, because has everything to ensure enjoyable entertainment: a devious revenge scheme, a bloodthirsty king, a deadly trap – but also loving hearts and brave heroes who defy all that.
It’s no wonder that it normally takes hours to tell this ingenious story. Then again, what is normal when KiKA presenter and audience favourite Juri Tetzlaff storms the stage together with the soloists of the Festival Opera? And that’s just it! They can do it in 75 minutes – and still make time for the nuances.
