Mozart's "Munich" opera is finally back where it was first performed in 1781! For the reopening of Munich's Cuvilliés-Theater, there is no more beautiful gift for this unique rococo jewel of a theatre and its audience. Idomeneo, a work with a gruesome conflict as its content: in case he is rescued from an emergency at sea, Idomeneo promises the god Poseidon to sacrifice the first person he encounters on shore. But the first one he sees, of all people, is his own son Idamante. Will the father really sacrifice his son to Poseidon? Is there a way out of this conflict? Dieter Dorn, who has left a telling mark on the Mozart repertoire of the Bavarian State Opera with his productions of Figaro and Così now stages Mozart's early, musically trail blazing opera. On the podium: Kent Nagano.
