Additional Information

Soprano Susanna Phillips returns to Boston Baroque once again after her acclaimed performances last spring of 2015 in Agrippina, this time making her role debut of Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare. “. . . with Susanna Phillips in the title role, vocally riveting, dramatically confident and with power in reserve. Her “Pensieri voi mi tormentate,” in which this queen of deception movingly admits to her own fears, brought some of the evening’s best singing,” wrote Jeremy Eichler in his Boston Globe review. Countertenors Lawrence Zazzo and John Holiday will make their Boston Baroque debuts with Zazzo in the title role as Cesare and Holiday as Cleopatra’s brother Tolomeo. “Lawrence Zazzo’s outstandingly imperious title-hero is the best sung and acted countertenor performance of the part (Giulio Cesare) I’ve encountered,” wrote Gramophone. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera, who performed with Boston Baroque in its 2014 acclaimed production and Grammy® nominated recording of Il ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria, makes a return as Sesto. Mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero, a regular with Boston Baroque, completes the cast as Cornelia. Critically acclaimed rising star stage director Mary Birnbaum makes her Boston Baroque debut in this production.
