La Clemenza Di Tito: Opera North
La Clemenza Di Tito is a tale of sexual obsession and divided loyalties, set in Ancient Rome. The powerful, alluring Vitellia has designs on the Emperor Tito, and is provoked to fury when he opts to marry someone else. She fans the flames of rebellion, and demands his assassination at the hands of her doting lover Sesto, Tito’s trusted confidant. Torn between loyalty to his friend and emperor and his fascination with the hypnotic Vitellia, Sesto makes a choice that tests Tito’s forgiving nature to breaking point.
Mozart received the commission for Tito when he was already underway with The Magic Flute, and this opera, composed for the coronation celebrations of the new Emperor of Bohemia, shares with that work the directness and simplicity typical of his late style. John Fulljames, Associate Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House, directs Opera North’s first production of Mozart’s sublime opera seria.
Sung in Italian with English titles
