In his second new production of the season, director David McVicar incorporates elements of Baroque theater and 19th-century British imperialism to illuminate this classic opera's themes of love, war, and empire building. David Daniels stars as the title character, opposite Natalie Dessay in her Met role debut as the bewitching Cleopatra, Alice Coote as Sesto, Patricia Bardon as Cornelia, Christophe Dumaux as Tolomeo, and Guido Loconsolo in his Met debut as Achilla.
