Hawkhurst

Glyndebourne Live: La Clemenza Di Tito () 180mins

Screening live by satellite from Glyndebourne to Kino Rye and Kino Hawkhurst on Thursday 3rd August at 6pm.

Loosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, La Clemenza Di Tito distills the suspense of Don Giovanni, the warmth of The Marriage of Figaro, and the nobility of The Magic Flute into one powerful parable of love and friendship, vengeance and mercy.

Spurned by Tito, Vitellia seeks revenge. Besotted Sesto agrees to avenge her as a token of his love, but all does not go to plan. Vitellia’s path to the throne is thwarted by the man who deposed her father, so she presses her admirer Sesto to murder him. Driven by love, Sesto does his worst. But in return, receives a lesson in forgiveness.

Conducted by Robin Ticciati and directed by Claus Guth, Mozart’s last opera delivers all of the sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity we expect of him.

Australian tenor Steve Davislim makes his Glyndebourne debut as Tito, with Alice Coote as Vitellia and Kate Lindsey as Sesto.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles
Running time approximately 180 minutes with one 30 minute interval
