About Idomeneo

Shipwrecked, he gets safely to shore only after promising Neptune to sacrifice the first person he sees—but it’s his son, Idamante. As Idomeneo agonizes over the catastrophe facing him, Idamante woos one princess, the lovely Ilia, and is madly pursued by another, the jealous Elettra. Through all their sorrows and joys, the constant is Mozart’s heavenly music—ravishing in its beauty, stirring in its eloquence, and reaching deeply into the soul of every character.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
