ETO – Idomeneo

  • Show Information

Returning from the Trojan War and caught in the midst of a storm, King Idomeno 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.

Mozart’s Idomeneo remains one of the greatest of his ‘opera seria’ (serious operas). This is an opera that explores royalty, high ideals and deep emotions. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
