Mozart (arr. R. Strauss) Idomeneo
Chelsea Opera Group Chorus and Orchestra
Andrew Greenwood conductor
Unfortunately, Chelsea Opera Group’s planned performance of Richard Strauss’s Idomeneo on Sunday 8 November has had to be cancelled due to the current restrictions, and will be rescheduled as soon as possible. Existing ticket holders have been contacted. If you have any questions please contact us online or call the box office on 020 7730 4500.
However, we are pleased to announce that Chelsea Opera Group will be performing a recital of aria and ensembles from popular works by Verdi, Mozart, Bellini and Donezetti as part of a socially distanced recital on Sunday 8 November at 5pm.
70 years ago Chelsea Opera Group chose for its inaugural concert Mozart’s Don Giovanni. In the tradition of bringing to its audiences the unusual and the unjustly neglected, they are celebrating 70 years of music-making with Mozart – but with a difference. This will be a rare opportunity to hear Richard Strauss’ controversial and fascinating reworking of Mozart’s Idomeneo, commissioned by the Vienna State Opera to mark the 130th anniversary of the work’s premiere.
Concert performance in German with English surtitles.
Please note start time.
Recommended age: 7+
Duration: approx. 2 hours 20 minutes (incl. interval)
