IDOMENEO - Past Productions (Opera)

Myth, War, Love and the First Operatic Masterpiece From a Young Genius.

Composed by W.A. Mozart
Libretto by Giovanni Battista Varesco
Aik Khai Pung, conductor
Marcus Shields, director

This production ran March 30-April 2, 2017.

Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, Mozart’s opera seria weaves a tale of gods and monsters, unrequited love and selfless heroism. During his perilous journey back to Greece after years at war, King Idomeneo pledges to sacrifice the first mortal he finds to Neptune in exchange for a safe journey home. When that mortal turns out to be his son Idamante, Idomeneo struggles to find another way to appease the gods, which creates dire repercussions for the people of Crete. Completed in 1780 when the composer was only 24 years old, Idomeneo is widely considered the first of Mozart’s great operas and remains a favorite of opera houses around the world. This production is sung in Italian with English supertitles.

"Few operas work better than Mozart's Idomeneo. Situated near the beginning of the Mozart operatic canon... [it] is grand, mythic, potentially tragic and, above all, serious: deeply serious. It catches us by surprise." - New York Times
