ETO - Mozart Idomeneo

English Touring Opera present a season of Kings and Queens in the battle for love, loyalty and power with each opera featuring a large chorus and live orchestra.

MOZART: Idomeneo
Returning from the Trojan War and caught in the midst of a storm, 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 Electra (Paula Sides) 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 greates of his 'opera seria' (serious operas). This is an opera that explores royalty, high ideals and deep emotions. Directed by ETO's General Director, James Conway. Sung in Italian with surtitles.

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
