About this Film

Met Opera - Idomeneo 2017

ODEON says...
Mozart's first operatic masterpiece 'Idomeneo' returns to the Met, the story of gods and warring Greek kings in Crete around 1200 BC.

Trojan captive Princess Ilia falls for Prince Idamante, but her hatred for his father King Idomeneo overshadows her love. As another princess fights for Idamante's affection, his father angers Neptune, the god of the sea.

The superb ensemble including Matthew Polenzani, Alice Coote, Nadine Sierra and Elza van den Heever explores the motivations and emotions of humans whose fates seem beyond their own control.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
