Mozart's final Italian opera, La Clemenza di Tito, features a charismatic cast conducted by Baroque specialist Harry Bicket and led by Giuseppe Filianoti as the title character, Tito, a Roman emperor.
This opera follows the story of vengeful Vitellia (Barbara Frittoli), daughter of a deposed ruler, who plans to assassinate Tito. Her plan for revenge is complicated by her romance with a young nobleman Sesto (El?na Garan?a). Kate Lindsey and Lucy Crowe co-star as the young lovers Annio and Servilia. Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's stylized production is one of the legendary director's most acclaimed stagings.
