Met Opera star Susanna Phillips returns to Boston Baroque after her triumphant turn as Agrippina to star as Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, one of the most popular Baroque operas ever written. Opposite Phillips is countertenor Lawrence Zazzo in the title role, which he has sung to great acclaim all over the globe. Don’t miss the latest in Boston Baroque’s series of semi-staged operas, now a bona fide not-to-be-missed Boston tradition!
