"One of the very greatest occasions in the history of the Australian Opera."

--Herald Sun

"Graham Pushee's reputation as one of the world's finest counter-tenors is justified. [...] As his Cleopatra, Yvonne Kenny, regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Handel in the world, also excelled. Her delivery, crispness of tone, wonderful acting ability and sheer bravado (for disrobing as she enters the famous milk bath) were impressive. The eulogies continue for Andrew Dalton as King Tolomeo, a splendid characterisation; as Sesto, Elizabeth Campbell was impressively aggressive; and as Achilla, Stephen Bennett made an equally aggressive general to Tolomeo...This production of Julius Caesar is opera as it should be: a glorious marriage of music, acting and singing, deliciously interleaved."
--The Wentworth Courier
