THE STORY

Julius Caesar, in pursuit of Pompey, lands in Egypt, where Pompey’s wife, Cornelia, and her son Sextus negotiate a reconciliation.

Ptolemy greets Caesar
with the gift of Pompey’s severed head.

Cornelia is overcome with grief and attempts suicide.
Her step-son Sextus  threatens vengeance.

Händel’s timeless opera about twisted sibling rivalry and out of control ambition is awesome!

Come see and hear us perform

this brilliant MASTERPIECE!

Testimonials From satisfied audiences!

  • Our HS concert band's trip to your show Die Fledermaus ala Salsa (the one that you scheduled specifically for us because there was nothing else going on in Southern California on that night of our trip) is to this day still a vivid memory for the kids in the band! The boy who got up and danced the salsa with you will never live it down - even though he's a senior this year. The kids all have fond memories and thoughts about opera because they saw a great performance live and up close.

    Thank you so much for your commitment to the arts!

  • This is the best kept secret on the westside.
    Every one of these performers could step onto an international stage and bring the house down!!
    If you want World class opera in an intimate setting....here's the company to attend.

  • Experiencing Linda Jackson and Eric Castro's Aida and Amonasro at the concert was a slice of perfection.
    Ethereal, heart wrenching, spellbinding, riveting, inspiring... I can't even find the proper adjective to describe the effect of those two voices ascending in that room.
    If you missed it, you missed a wondrous performance.
    That is all.
