Preview of Mozart's 'La Clemenza di Tito' and the Vienna Boys' Choir Holiday Concert

Two musical events coming to the Warner

Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito

Torrington, CT – On Saturday, December 1, at 1pm, The Met: Live in HD series continues at the Warner’s Nancy Marine Studio Theatre with Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito.

The virtuosic Elîna Garanèa sings Sesto in Mozart’s drama set in ancient Rome. Giuseppe Filianoti is the noble Tito and Barbara Frittoli is Vitellia, in this handsome revival of one of the composer’s final masterpieces. Harry Bicket conducts.

Elina Garanca, “sleek and beautiful, with a lustrous voice” (New York Post) is “a splendid interpreter” of Sesto; “she produces luminous sounds that seem to linger suspended in the air like shining pearls.” (AP)

As Tito, Giuseppe Filianoti “soared to virile, commanding form,” and Barbara Frittoli “burned up the stage as the scheming Vitellia” (New York Post). This “elegant” production (AP) is “more than the sum of its excellent parts” (New York Post).

A pre broadcast lecture by Nunzio DeFilippis will begin at 11am for all interested ticket holders.

Tickets for this event are $25, $23 for seniors and students and $15 for children 13 & under. To purchase tickets you can call the Warner box office at 860-489-7180 or go online to www.warnertheatre.org/metopera.htm.

Sponsors for The Met: Live in HD Series: Lakeville Interiors, Backstage Restaurant, Litchfield Hills Wine Market
