"Mozart's treatment of the various characters in Lucio Silla is masterly," says Laurence Equilbey, "Shaking up the conventions of opera seria, he conveys the passions and torments of the human soul." A drama of passion and politics in Ancient Rome, Lucio Silla was composed in 1772, when Mozart was just sixteen. This recording represents the culmination of an extended project undertaken by Equillbey, her Insula Orchestra, Le Jeune Choeur de Paris and five brilliant solo singers. Between 2016 and 2021, Equilbey's Lucio Silla became a much-praised travelling show visiting such locations as Paris, Vienna, Aix-en-Provence, Versailles and Beaune. The title role is taken by tenor Alessandro Liberatore, who is joined by countertenor Franco Fagioli and three contrasting sopranos, Olga Pudova, Chiara Skerath and Ilse Eerens.
