In 2015, Classical Opera embarked on MOZART 250, a ground-breaking exploration of Mozart’s life, works and influences. Each year we will explore the music that was being written by Mozart and his contemporaries exactly 250 years previously, following the trajectory of his life, works and influences in chronological sequence.

The next MOZART 250 is :

Mozart: La finta semplice
2 June 2018 Birmingham Town Hall
6 & 8 June 2018 Southbank Centre

Book now for a rare chance to hear Mozart’s first full-length opera, La finta semplice. Written when the composer was just twelve years old, the opera is based on a sparkling comedy by Carlo Goldoni, and combines situations of great comic invention and genuine humour with music of extraordinary beauty, energy and psychological insight. Ian Page directs a superb international cast of world-class young singers, headed by the rapidly emerging Swiss soprano Regula Mühlemann, who recently launched a solo recording contract with Sony Classical with a highly acclaimed disc of Mozart arias.
