A chain of unrequited affections sets the scene for Mozart’s melodious and noble drama of ancient Rome. A plot to assassinate the emperor unleashes wrenching emotions and poignant ironies, as the characters weigh punishment against personal loyalty. When the emperor emerges unharmed, mercy and generosity win the day.
Fully staged production with members of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in Italian
