Mozart: Il Re Pastore

Thomas Hengelbrock conducts the Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble in this 2006 Salzburg Festival production of Mozart's opera. After conquering Phoenicia and deposing its tyrant ruler, Alessandro (Kresimir Spicer) installs the rightful heir, Aminta (Annette Dasch), to the throne -- but Aminta, who's unaware of his status, has been living as a shepherd. Now, he must deal with his newfound power and his love for peasant girl Elisa (Marlis Petersen).
