The In Series
Written when Mozart was only twenty-five, “Idomeneo” reflects classic Enlightenment ideals and Mozart’s profound humanity, in glorious music.
The Story- King Idomeneo and his soldiers are returning home from years of war when their ship is engulfed by a storm. Idomeneo offers the gods the sacrifice of the first human being they encounter on shore, in exchange for survival. That person in Idamante, the king’s son, who has meanwhile become a promising leader and is loved by both the Trojan princess Illia and the Greek Princess Electra.
