A dramatic tale of lust for power, seduction and attempted assassination in ancient Rome, La clemenza di Tito is a Mozart masterpiece. Composed in the year of his death, Mozart’s great experience in the operatic field is ardently evident as the arias and ensembles reflect a high level of musical elegance and psychological depth. High-note voices take centre stage where Mozart lends scope for impressive coloratura. Emily Pogorelc makes her Festival D’Aix-en-Provence debut as Servilia.
