Roger Norrington in Mozart: Idomeneo

Mozart: Idomeneo

2006 NR

Trapped in a storm at sea, the king of Crete makes a bargain with the gods: Spare his life, and he will sacrifice the first soul he meets when he reaches shore. But his heart is torn with grief when that first soul turns out to be his own son. Tenor Ramón Vargas stars in one of Mozart's most powerful operas, performed as part of a landmark presentation of all 22 of the composer's stage works at the 2006 Salzburg Festival.
