One of Mozart’s last works, La clemenza di Tito was reputedly written in 18 days to mark the crowning in Prague in 1791 of Leopold II as King of Bohemia. The action is set in Rome in the time of the emperor Titus who ruled from AD 79-81. The story is one of intrigue, jealousy and violence and celebrates the emperor’s capacity to show forgiveness and mercy to those who wish to kill him.

Critics have not always been kind to this opera, finding its opera seria form constricting, but it has recently returned to favour and has a place in the schedules of the world’s major opera houses.

Coming a few days after the coronation of HM King Charles III in London, Chelsea Opera Group’s performance offers an opportunity to hear Mozart’s genius at work in celebration of a coronation over 200 years ago.

A concert performance in Italian with English subtitles.
