Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's Staging Of Idomeneo

Mozart's early masterpiece Idomeneo makes a long awaited return as part of the Lyric Opera Of Chicago's diverse 2018/19 season. The great composer's heavenly libretto was written when he was just 25 years of age, yet is imbued with musical maturity and eloquence. Don't miss this dramatic staging by the late, great Jean-Pierre Ponnelle, starring American lyric tenor Matthew Polenzani in the title role.

Based on the ancient Greek story, the inventive opera follows the noble king Idomeneo. After being shipwrecked, Neptune sees him safely to shore, on the condition that the king must sacrifice the first person he lays eyes on. The ruler is cast into turmoil when he first meets his son Idamante, risking the ire of the gods if he does not do the damnable deed.

An audience charmer peddling romantic hokum, the play is satisfying despite being scarcely credible and touchingly sweet even when flagrantly sentimental.
