Kultur is proud to present Mozart from the intimate setting of Sweden’s Drottningholm Court Theatre, dating back to 1766, providing a perfect stage for these operas and featuring excellent casts and superb directors, accompanied by period instruments for a truly authentic experience.
“For true Mozart stick with Drottningholm. Excellent standard… notable for the clarity of the period-instrument sound and for a production wholly appropriate to the tiny Drottningholm space.” - Gramophone
"The Drottningholm "Idomeneo" employed the palace theater's copies of its original 200-year-old settings. The designer Martin Rupprecht had chosen these modest backgrounds for his own costumes, dark wigs, three-cornered hats and frock coats, with suggestions of formal black armor, relieved only by Ilia's silvery dress and the Electra's black gown, lined with gold for her one moment of anticipated happiness at the end of Act 2. Stuart Kale sang a noble Idomeneo, equal to the coloratura of the Munich version, miraculous enough at the often breakneck tempos of the conductor Arnold Oestman." - James Helme Sutcliffe, New York Times
