Mitridate, re di Ponto
at Royal Opera House
This hidden gem, Mitridate, re di Ponto, premiered right before Mozart's 15th (!) birthday but was not re-discovered until the 20th century. It is rarely played on the opera stage but now a fine cast led by Christophe Rousset takes on this demanding but beautiful piece of music at the Royal Opera House in London.
Farnace and Sifare, sons of the mighty warrior Mitridate, both love their father’s fiancée Aspasia. While Sifare is determined to remain loyal to his father, Farnace vows never to yield. Mitridate discovers that Farnace is preparing to betray him to their enemies, and that Sifare and Aspasia love each other. He swears vengeance on them all, and marches into battle. Sifare and Farnace escape their imprisonment to join him. Mitridate dies from his wounds, finally reconciled with his family.
The performance of Mitridate, re di Ponto is about 3 h 30 min long, including two intervals. It is sung in the original language Italian and has English surtitles.
Experience fine singing and beautiful music in one of Europe's finest opera houses!
