GIULIO CESARE OPERA POSTER

POSTER DESIGN, ILLUSTRATION

PROJECT


This project tasked me with creating a promotional poster for an opera being held at The Met, using only imagery. The opera I was assigned was George Handel’s Giulio Cesare.

PROCESS


To properly prepare for this, I went to the YouTube and watched this opera in its entirety just to be sure I understood what story was being told. After this, I began looking into ways to depict the primary relationship in this story: Julius and Cleopatra, and through them, Rome and Egypt. I finally ended up choosing  iconic imagery of the differing cultures and mixing them in a way that is representative of the union of Julius and Cleopatra.
