Chicago Summer Opera – Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito

  • Skokie Theater 7924 Lincoln Avenue Skokie, IL, 60077 United States (map)

The anti-heroine role of Vitellia is one of the most difficult in the Mozart canon. Her music spans two and a half octaves, with a climactic high D, flights of coloratura, and a rondo that dips down into contralto territory. Sesto, the conflicted hero of this opera, is also a tour de force role carrying the weight of this opera with two of Mozart's finest arias, a duet, a trio, and what seems like the entire first act finale.  And the titular role, the Enlightenment figure, calls for that rare Mozartean tenor who can manage both florid and declamatory passages.
