What's Next at COT?

The next opera in COT's season of adventure is Lucio Silla written by 16-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Young Mozart's piece tells the dramatic triangle of love and lust between Lucio Silla, dictator of Rome, Giunia, the daughter of his enemy Caius Marius, and Giuni's love not for Lucio, but for the exiled senator Cecilio.
