ETO – Idomeneo
Tue 14 May , 7:30 pm| £29
Idomeneo remains one of Mozart’s ‘opera seria’ (serious operas). Set This is an opera that explores royalty, high ideals and deep emotions. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, King Idomeneo promises the raging seas that he will sacrifice the first person he meets, in return for his safe passage. Cruelly, the first person he encounters is his only son, Idamante.
The rivalry between the princesses Ilia and Elettra for the heart of Idamante coupled with a king’s ill-fated promise provide a rich, emotional drama and unforgettable music.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
