CCM’s brand-new take on Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito (The Clemency of Titus) opens this Friday, April 12, and continues through Sunday, April 14, 2019 in Corbett Auditorium. A dramatic tale of vengeance and forgiveness, CCM’s production is set during the Cuban Revolution in 1959.

View the slideshow below for your sneak peek at the opera. Mozart’s last opera seria, La Clemenza di Tito displays some of his most memorable and marvelous arias. Caught between his duty and his heart, Emperor Tito must choose whether to rule with mercy or with an iron fist after he narrowly avoids an assassination plot.
