The Clemency of Titus
A U.S. premiere!
After stand-out performances at the Kennedy Center’s Artes de Cuba festival in 2018, the multi-award-winning Havana Lyceum Orchestra and one of Latin America’s most cutting-edge theater directors Carlos Diaz join forces for a Cuban adaptation of Mozart’s opera La Clemenza di Tito. With singers and actors from both Cuba and Salzburg (Mozart’s Austrian birthplace), Cuban dancers, and over 40 musicians performing together, this new production is guaranteed to bring a thrilling, fresh perspective to Mozart’s masterpiece about Rome’s beloved new emperor—and the secret plot to overthrow him at all costs.
In Italian with some Spanish dialog and English titles
