LA CLEMENZA DI TITO

MOZART

Spurned by Tito, Vitellia seeks revenge. Besotted Sesto agrees to avenge her as a token of his love, but all does not go to plan. A brand new take on one of Mozart’s final works.

Vitellia's path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him. Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness.

Conducted by Robin Ticciati and directed by Claus Guth, Mozart's opera delivers all of the sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity we expect of him. MLoosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, La clemenza di Tito distills the suspense of Don Giovanni, the warmth of The Marriage of Figaro, and the nobility of The Magic Flute into one powerful parable of love and friendship, vengeance and mercy.

Australian tenor Steve Davislim makes his Glyndebourne debut as Tito, with Alice Coote as Vitellia and Kate Lindsey as Sesto. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
