La Clemenza di Tito

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Please select a country from the list to get additional information.

La Clemenza di Tito was composed in the summer of 1791, a few months before Mozart’s death, as a commission for the coronation of Emperor Leopold II as King of Bohemia in Prague – he supposedly composed the opera in just 18 days, having anyway achieved the writing of several “top numbers” according to opera star Jonas Kaufmann, always balancing vocal challenges with enough musical simplicity.

Regarded by many as Mozart’s opera seria masterpiece, the production of Jonathan Miller brings the Bohemian opera to a present-day audience, while conductor Welser-Möst strives to reveal the humour inherent to Mozart’s music.
