Mozart: Il sogno di Scipione

Soloists Stuart Jackson (Scipio), Klara Ek (Constancy) and Soraya Mafi (Fortune) play out an age-old moral dilemma through the story of a sleeping Roman general in the second century BC. An almost total lack of plot and narrative development in the supplied libretto gives our teenage composer free rein to show off his own burgeoning dramatic genius.
