Mozart's 'La Clemenza di Tito' from Paris
Thursday, August 20, 2015
Tune in Saturday at 5pm to hear the characters in Mozart's final opera, "La Clemenza di Tito," discover that even when it seems things could hardly go more horribly, disastrously wrong, everything can still turn out just fine — thanks to this drama's generous, and almost surreally tolerant title character.
On World of Opera, Mozart's "La Clemenza di Tito" comes to us from the Champs-Elysées Theatre in Paris. The stars are tenor Kurt Streit as Emperor Tito, and soprano Karina Gauvin as Vittelia, the woman who'll stop at nothing to become his empress, in a production led by conductor Jérémie Rhorer.

Vitellia: Karina Gauvin (soprano)
