Mozart: Mithridate DVD

Mozart was just 14 years old when he composed Mitridate, re di Ponto, a noble opera seria based on a play by Racine. A great success at its premiere, it is only rarely staged today, so this 2016 performance, led by Emmanuelle Haïm at Paris’s Théâtre des Champs Elysées, was by definition a special occasion. The dazzlingly virtuosic cast is led by tenor Michael Spyres and sopranos Patricia Petibon and Sabine Devieilhe, while the intense modern staging is by Clément Hervieu-Léger, a resident director at France’s most illustrious theatre company, the Comédie Française.

'Clément Hervieu-Léger gets vivid acting from his cast...Musically, everything is first-rate. Michael Spyres negotiates the wide leaps of his entrance aria with ease. Patricia Petibon is accomplished in the coloratura and intense when she addresses the shades of Elysium...Haïm's tempos are ideal and Le Concert d’Astrée play impeccably.' Gramophone
