About

Considered to be one of his most brilliant creations, Mozart’s Idomeneo is a perfect masterpiece for the two enfants terribles of classical music and and opera staging, conductor Teodor Currentzis and stage director Peter Sellars. Joined by exceptional artists like Russell Thomas, Paula Murrihy, Ying Fang, Nicole Chevalier, and the renowned period instrument orchestra the Freiburger Barockorchester, they give a one-of-a-kind performance of the familiar score in the city where its creator was born! 

The tale is harrowing: the old king Idomeneo promises to Neptune that he will sacrifice the first person he meets if the god saves him from shipwreck...yet it is his own son Idamante who first arrives as part of his rescue party! This story becomes all the more intriguing when one considers the stormy relationship between Wolfgang and his father Leopold Mozart, who was an incredibly demanding stage parent to his genius son.
