Mozarts last opera holds some of his most extraordinary and emotional music.

Mozart’s beautiful last opera is set in Rome, and explores the appalling jealousies, ambitions and desperate love affairs during the reign of the emperor Tito. Rome burns, and Sesto, a young man driven by obsessive love for Vitellia the would-be empress, is accused of the crime. But Tito decides on mercy rather than the exercise of power.

The opera has profound relevance to current times, and its miraculous music tells a powerful story.
