The characters in Mozart's final opera La Clemenza di Tito, discover that even when it seems that things could hardly go more horribly, disastrously wrong, everything can eventually turn out just fine — thanks to this drama's generous, and almost surreally tolerant title character.

Tenor Richard Croft stars as the magnanimous Emperor Tito, with soprano Annemarie Kremer as Vitellia, the woman determined to either have Tito, or see him dead.
