Mozart: Mitridate, re di Ponto DVD (The Royal Opera)

Mozart’s fourth opera – written when he was only 14 – displays all the hallmarks of the fresh, inventive writing that was to flourish into extraordinary genius in his later works. With a cast as good as this, The Royal Opera’s production takes Mitridate, re di Ponto to the highest levels of operatic achievement. Based on a play by Jean Racine, the opera tells a story of jealous love and political intrigue. 'This is, unequivocally, a red-letter night at Covent Garden'. The Sunday Times
