About This Show

Mozart‘s first undisputed operatic masterpiece. Intensely dramatic, it contains some of the composer’s greatest music. Returning home from the Trojan War, Idomeneo is saved from a storm at sea by the god Neptune. He vows to sacrifice the first person he meets on landing – who turns out to be his own son. A classic tale with poignantly beautiful arias, glorious ensembles and dramatic choral music.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
