LOLA Austin - La clemenza di Tito (Vitellia)

  • Scottish Rite Masonic Temple 207 West 18th Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

LOLA is proud to present one of Mozart's final operas with our own spin, La Clemenza di Tito: A Retelling. Performances will be March 1st and 2nd at 7:30 pm and March 4th at 4 pm.

Director's Notes: "What does it mean to be a good leader?  Is a good leader someone who is beloved but perhaps not just?  Is a good leader someone who rules with an iron fist? Can there be a middle ground? These questions are just a few of the themes and larger ideas that Mozart and his librettist Mazzol√† (based off of a libretto by Metastasio) were grappling with in La Clemenza di Tito. 

In reimagining the opera for LOLA we have taken out the recitative and written in a new character, the Hebrew queen Berenice, who will serve as a narrator and guide as we explore those themes within a modern context. 

Come experience some of Mozart's most dazzling and lyrical musical numbers in Austin's intimate Scottish Rite Theater with LOLA's La Clemenza di Tito: A Retelling. " - Rebecca Herman, Artistic Producer, LOLA.
