Mozart La clemenza di Tito

Our second BBC Prom of the summer sees our Glyndebourne production transported to London in concert format.

The collision of love and ambition in Mozart’s morally conflicted final opera, and the compassion of a wronged emperor, make for a scenario as relevant today as in the ancient Rome where it is set. Blending ravishing arias with intricate human psychology, La clemenza di Tito ranks among the finest of Mozart’s mature works.

Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote leads an all-star cast as the vengeful Vitellia under Glyndebourne’s Music Director Robin Ticciati.

Mozart  String Quartet No. 14
Beethoven String Quartet No. 11, Op. 95, Serioso

The year is 1809, and Napoleon is bombing the heck out of Vienna. While his friends are busy fleeing the city, a surly Beethoven holes up in his brother’s basement and complains about the noise. Losing his hearing, friends and money, he writes music that reflects his mood – increasingly heavy, dark, and insecure.

William Christie conductor
Christopher Lowrey counter-tenor
Ashley Riches bass
Dingle Yandell baritone
Callum Thorpe bass
Anna Devin soprano
Rowan Pierce soprano
Choir of the Age of Enlightenment

Our first trip to the Proms in 2017 is filled with frogs, locusts, hailstones and rivers of blood, as we perform Israel in Egypt, one of Handel’s most extravagantly dramatic oratorios. Placing the chorus in the spotlight, Handel uses the collective voices to tell the story of an entire people, demanding greater virtuosity than ever before in some thrilling choral writing.

William Christie conducts in the launch of a series of Handel oratorios to be performed over the coming seasons at the Proms.
