Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito From Venice
Thursday, June 26, 2014
The characters in Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito, his final opera, discover that even when it seems 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.
On World of Opera, host Lisa Simeone presents La Clemenza di Tito from a theater that just might be opera's most glamorous destination, La Fenice in Venice. Tenor Carlo Allemano stars as the magnanimous Emperor Tito, with soprano Carmela Remigio as Vitellia, the woman determined to either have Tito or see him dead.
