 Company premiere! A new production of Mozart’s rarely performed final masterpiece.

The most powerful civilization in the world falls vulnerable to the machinations of power players seeking glory. In a drama marked by shifting layers of morality and loyalty, Mozart’s unmistakable love for humanity shines through in his glorious and endlessly inventive music. Russell Thomas stars as the imperiled leader whose generosity and compassion point the way to a brighter future. A new production, directed and designed by Thaddeus Strassberg (Nabucco, 2017) is conducted by Music Director James Conlon.

In Italian with projected English translations
