A semi-staged concert with arias from the ‘king operas’ by W.A. Mozart
La clemenza di Tito and Idomeneo are Mozart’s best-known operas based on kings and rulers. Yet themes of power, abuse of power and leadership can also be found in numerous early operas by the Salzburg master, such as Mitridate, Ascanio in Alba, Lucio Silla and Il re pastore. A new generation of students from the International Opera Academy will take to the main stage with these lesser-known but utterly fascinating opera scores, directed by Wolfgang Gruber.
