Composed in only eighteen days, La Clemenza di Tito is Mozart's operatic swan song, his last opera, written a few months before his death (some say the one before last, The Magic Flute being the very last one) and perhaps the most beautiful opera ever written. It enjoyed considerable critical acclaim and great success in the years following Mozart's death and then it was largely forgotten, only to be revived in the last forty years or so. Contemporary critics were in doubt whether La Clemenza had surpassed Don Giovanni. It was referred to by one of them as a "heavenly work, full of emotion and expression with stately and sublime choruses and andantes of heavenly sweetness"; by another as "the most perfect work Mozart completed". This video is a very nice rendition of this supreme masterwork, beautifully sung and well acted. Ashley Putnam is a convincing Vitellia - envious, scheming, ruthless and yet... so human. The music is never too fast, the way Mozart should be played, though the recitatives occasionally are. It is sung in the original Italian with English subtitles. I found the staging slightly awkward sometimes (why the slanted stage?) and I don't understand why everybody is barefoot (unless there is some esoteric significance in that that escaped me) but it is still a 5-star video, I think. If you are only familiar with Mozart's other more famous master operas such as Figaro or Don Giovanni you may want to give La Clemenza a try. You will find a world of stunningly beautiful arias in the best Mozartian tradition, fascinating characters such as Vitellia and Sesto, who both dominate the opera, a clever plot, plus intrigue, seduction, love, passion, despair and at the end... redemption and mercy.Read more ›

The tempo in this Drottingholm court production is slightly too fast for my liking but all in all it's a good performance. I won't comment in detail on the singing as this full performance is on YouTube (with german subtitles) so judge for yourself. However I feel that the Drottingholm singers have a weaker power of projection on average that limits the degree to which the audience is moved. You won't feel shivers down your spine for this one. Happily the acting makes up for what's lacking at times - Lani Poulson for one convincingly depicts Sesto as an innocent youth torn between love and loyalty. Anita Soldh is also convincingly conniving and manipulative as Vitellia (in the first act). This all said, for non-traditionalists I'd recommend the 2003 Salzburg Festival modernist production of La Clemenza (also on YouTube in full but unsubtitled) that features truly phenomenal singing, and in my opinion, perfect control of tempo by maestro Harnoncourt that reinforces the atmosphere on stage. If you are a traditionist, well, cut off the visuals and you'd have an outstanding performance by a cast of considerable all round distinction.
