General Information

Description

Mozart's last opera, along with Die Zauberflöte and the Requiem, is his testament, the testament of an aesthete but also that of a humanist. From his childhood, Mozart had passionately loved and brilliantly exploited the genre of opera seria in works such as Lucio Silla or Idomeneo. Returning to it once again, he reiterates his love for the structure and pure lines of tragedy and the classical art of expression. Here, pity and passion are subjected to the imperious laws of beauty: is there any virtue more admirable than mercy, the knowledge and acceptance of the fault of another and its forgiveness? The very title of the work is a declaration of Mozart's final acceptance of his own destiny (he was to die at the age of thirty-four) and of his pardon offered to all. Tomas Netopil conducts this austere yet flamboyant masterpiece in Willy Decker's refined production.
