The collision of love and ambition in Mozart’s morally conflicted  final opera, and the compassion of a wronged emperor, make for a scenario as relevant today as in the ancient Rome where it is set. Blending ravishing arias with intricate human psychology, La clemenza di Tito ranks among the  finest of Mozart’s mature works. Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote leads an all-star cast as the vengeful Vitellia under Glyndebourne’s Music Director Robin Ticciati. 

Semi-staged; sung in Italian.

Tickets £14 - £60.
