Glyndebourne: La Clemenza di Tito
We will be showing Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito live from the Glyndebourne Festival on Thursday 3rd August at 6.00pm.
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 production for 2017, 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.
Cast: Steve Davislim (Tito), Alice Coote (Vitellia), Kate Lindsey (Sesto), Joélle Harvey (Servilia)
