Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was overjoyed when Kurfürst of Bavaria and Pfalz commissioned him to write an opera for the palace carnival in Munich. Written in a few weeks, the new work Idomeneo, re di Creta was performed in January 1781 and proved to be massively successful. It was Mozart’s first mature opera, which was never produced again while the composer was still alive.

On the stage of the LNOBT Idomeneo was introduced by British director Graham Vick, known for his productions that offer radical interpretations of classical works. According to the director himself, this work is not intended for experts of Mozart – this epic breakthrough piece by the genius composer should mostly appeal to younger audience, which didn’t spend much time appreciating the genre of opera.
