The Metropolitan Opera: Idomeneo
Mar 29, 2017

12:55pm.

Idomeneo is grand, mythic, potentially tragic and, above all, serious: deeply serious. It catches us by surprise.

Accompany the Metropolitan Opera on a journey back to Ancient Greece, to a land of gods and monsters, where love is almost always complicated by fate, envy or the supernatural and deals are made with vengeful deities as a matter of course.

Considered Mozarts first mature work, his score builds a swelling sound and colorscape as the wonderful libretto unwinds a fantastical tale of honor, love and triumph for the ages.

When King Idomeneo is lost at sea in the aftermath of the Trojan war, he makes an impassioned plea to Neptune to save him, and in return he promises to sacrifice the first living soul he sees on his rescue. But it is an opera, and that means the first person he sees is his son Idamante. Torn between paternal love and responsibility to the vengeful god, he seeks to find a way out of his bargain...with predictably disastrous results.
