Why See Metropolitan Opera - La Clemenza Di Tito?
Revenge & Forgiveness In Ancient Rome
Written in the latter years of the opera seria tradition as well as its composer's prolific life, Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito is arguably the most celebrated work of its genre. Experience the thrilling ptoductions's heavenly arias and vocal virtuosity, brought to the Met Opera House stage by an all-star cast including American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in the role of Sesto and American lyric tenor Matthew Polenzani in the role of the titular Tito, lead by German conductor Lothar Koenigs.
Through exquisite solos, a rousing introductory overture and counterpoint between solo vocal and instrument, Mozart tells a grand tale of love, betrayal, revenge and forgiveness set in the ancient Roman Empire. Emperor Tito becomes embroiled in an assassination plot when the former emperor's daughter Vitellia, believing she has right to the throne, conspires with her lover Sesto (who also happens to be a close friend of Tito), influencing him to attempt dastardly deed.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
