This year’s gala features some exclusive musical moments as the Estonian National Opera mounts for two evenings one of Mozart’s rarely performed operas on world stages. “Idomeneo” is Mozart’s humane drama about the casualties of war, the meaning of fate at the power of love. “Idomeneo” was Mozart’s first major opera. His wonderful music makes great demands on the large cast, and the opera’s everyday themes still touch audiences today.
In this game of love, passion and justice, sovereignty and politics will clash, the past will meet the now. This turmoil of themes resulted in an exceptional score with challenging arias, virtuoso orchestral parts and powerful choral scenes.
