Mozart’s final opera is a beguiling mix of enchantment and Enlightenment politics. A score overflowing with melody and invention and a fairy-tale cast of characters together create one of the composer’s best-loved comedies.

Ryan Wigglesworth conducts an exciting young cast including Sofia Fomina, Björn Bürger and David Portillo.

"... bold, inquisitive playing from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment."
