The young Mozart combines glorious melody, dazzling vocal fireworks and exquisitely tender melancholy in his first opera seria, premiered to immediate acclaim in the year of Beethoven's birth. The king, Mitridate, and his two sons are all in love with Princess Aspasia; a complex web of rivalry, jealousy and pent up passion ensues. We welcome back Tim Albery to direct, conductor Clemens Schuldt makes his Garsington debut with The English Concert and Robert Murray (Semele, 2017) in the title role.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
