The finale of the 52nd  International Festival Wratislavia Cantans will be devoted to the brilliant work of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Ahead of us is an exceptional productiON presented in collaboration with the Wroclaw Opera:  the staging of the last opera of the great Viennese Classicist, La clemenza di Tito.

La clemenza di Tito was created specifically for the crowning ceremony of Emperor Leopold II for the king of Bohemia. Mozart was writing it in a huge haste – he received the commission in July 1791, and the premiere was scheduled for September! Why did the composer even agree to create a coronation opera? Apparently, Domenico Guardasoni, who was responsible for organizing proper celebration of the imperial ceremony, found ways to persuade him. The subject of the work was inspired by the nickname – “German Titus” – that Leopold II was given a few years earlier. Due to limited time, it was decided to create a libretto based on the popular musical adaptation of a text by famous lyricist and writer Pietro Metastasia. It is a pity that the opera filled with truly virtuoso arias has been forgotten for so many years, “reborn” only at the end of the last century, when it began to be staged more frequently in theaters around the world. Mozart composed La clemenza di Tito at the same time he made his famous singspiel – The Magic Flute. And though he had completed the story of the young prince Tamino a little earlier than La clemenza di Tito, it premiered exactly twenty-four days after the coronation of Leopold II.

During the final evening at Wratislavia Cantans, Mozart's La clemenza di Tito will be performed by an international group of soloists accompanied by the musicAeterna Orchestra and Choir. This exciting Russian vocal-instrumental ensemble is one of today’s most captivating groups specializing in early music. Open to challenges and unconventional projects, the artists are also successful in performing 20th century repertoire.
