Handel · Julius Caesar
San Diego Opera
... thanks to a world-class cast and conductor, the exquisitely sung baroque opera will be remembered as the highlight of San Diego Opera's 2006 season.
... the 44-piece orchestra (complete with harpsichord and baroque cello), conducted masterfully by Kenneth Montgomery, present a fresh and vivacious reading of Handel's score.

Exacting yet flexible support came from conductor Kenneth Montgomery and the San Diego Symphony
Valerie Scher, San Diego Union Tribune, 17-04-06
The score, played by a small orchestra including a baroque cello, theorbo and harpsichord, was wonderfully and modishly conducted by Kenneth Montgomery.
