About Idomeneo

Mozart's first mature masterpiece took a stock mythological plot and transformed it into a life-and-death drama of real characters confronted by the personal and political consequences of choices made in a time of war. Following her 2009 adaptation of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas - which sold out the Young Vic, and is also set in the aftermath of the Trojan War - Katie Mitchell brings her unique directorial style to bear on what is now widely seen as Mozart's most deeply-felt piece.

Full of virtuosic yet often intimately lyrical vocal writing, grand public processions and stirring choruses, Idomeneo is conducted by ENO's Olivier Award-winning Music Director Edward Gardner. The cast features some of Britain's best, including Paul Nilon, Robert Murray, Sarah Tynan and Emma Bell.
