Mozart’s great choral opera charts the path of Idomeneo, king of Crete, as he navigates literal and figurative stormy seas on his return from the Trojan War. For this staged concert performance, countertenor-turned-conductor René Jacobs makes a rare New York appearance, joined by “exemplary” Mozart tenor Jeremy Ovenden (Sunday Times, U.K.) in the title role. The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra lends authenticity to the action, and choral parts soar with Vienna’s highly sought-after Arnold Schoenberg Choir.
