A story of treachery, guilt and mercy

Vitellia’s path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him.

Sesto is caught in an agonising dilemma, for the man in question is not only his best friend but also his sovereign.

Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness.

Mozart’s last opera

Conducted by Robin Ticciati and directed by Claus Guth, Mozart’s last opera delivers all of the sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity we expect of him.

Loosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, La clemenza di Tito distills the suspense of Don Giovanni, the warmth of Le nozze di Figaro, and the nobility of Die Zauberflöte into one powerful parable of love and friendship, vengeance and mercy.
