Mozart (arr. R. Strauss) Idomeneo
Chelsea Opera Group Chorus and Orchestra
Andrew Greenwood conductor
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.
