The Conservatory of Music of Brooklyn College Presents

Mozart's "Lucio Silla"

May 11-13

Mozart's "Lucio Silla"

Artwork: Joseph Loguirato

The Brooklyn College Opera Theatre's production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Lucio Silla, is an opera in three acts featuring the Conservatory Orchestra and the Conservatory Singers.

This concert version of Mozart's early opera-seria gem is a work that shimmers with the promise of the prodigy's blossoming maturity. It was first performed on December 26th, 1772 at the Teatro Regio Ducalin in Milan and was regarded as "a moderate success." Handel's opera Silla (1713) covered the same subject. Other operas with the same title were also composed by Pasquale Anfossi (1774), and Johann Christian Bach (1776).

The melodramatic story revolves around the Roman dictator Lucio Silla (Lucius Sulla), who pines for Giunia, but unfortunately for him Giunia, as it happens, is the daughter of his arch enemy, Gaius Marius. As fickle fate would have it, Giunia has no interest whatsoever in Lucio's amorous advances because she is madly in love with an exiled senator, Cecilio Aurelio. Wackiness ensues.
