For the first time since 2002, The Royal Opera perform La clemenza di Tito (The Mercy of Titus) – Mozart’s operatic portrayal of a society threatened by change, control and intrigue. This new production by Richard Jones, pared-down for our times, highlights how the opera’s themes of political scheming but also mercy are just as resonant in modern society as they were in the original Ancient Roman setting.
Mark Wigglesworth conducts one of Mozart’s most striking scores, which includes stunning arias to be performed by a fine young cast including Nicole Chevalier, Emily D'Angelo and former Jette Parker Young Artist Edgaras Montvidas.

Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of what we do on our stages, backstage, online, in cinemas and in our communities. This year’s global pandemic has affected all arts organisations across the world. We have lost £3 in every £5 of our income, and any Government loan will take us only part of the way. We need your help to bring artists back to our stages. Please consider making a donation to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign.
