Apollo et Hyacinthus

From 10 November 2023 to 11 November 2023/ Malta / Valetta

Apollo et Hyacinthus is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (1756-1791) first venture into opera and was composed when Mozart was merely 11 years old.

Rarely performed, this opera is based on the story of Hyacinth and Apollo from Greek mythology which tells the tale of the love between Apollo and the young Spartan prince Hyacinth, as well as the murder of Hyacinth due to Zephyrus’ jealousy.
In this interpretation of Apollo et Hyacinthus, Director Fabio Ceresa gives a new flavour to Mozart’s piece through an opulent rendition of the opera complemented by set and costume design by Giuseppe Palella.
