Notes & Reviews:
Idomeneo, King of Crete, has been away from home during the long years of the Trojan War. Idamante, his son, now regent of the island, waits for his return, heralded by the arrival of Trojan prisoners in Crete. One of these prisoners is Ilia, daughter of the murdered King Priam of Troy. Idamante has fallen in love with Ilia, but is loved by Electra, daughter of the Greek King, Agamemnon, who is taken refuge in Crete. This revised revival of the acclaimed 1986 Drottningholm production by Michael Hampe conducted by Arnold stman, was staged during the Mozart Bicentenary year. Combining both tragedy and comedy with drama, 'Idomeneo' boasts a series of superbly expressive pieces which Einstein described as "one of those works that even a genius of the highest rank, like Mozart, could write only once in his life."Notes & Reviews:
