The Shepherd King. Delicate, intricate, and charming, 'Il re pastore' is a fine example of a youthful Mozart showing much more thant the promise of genius. Written when he was nineteen, 'Il re pastore' is still several operas into Mozart's career, and the simple tale of a shepherd who inherits a kingdom is told with immense skill. The shepherd Amyntas, is blissfully unaware of his royal blood, and anticipating a happy future with his country bride. War and politics pass him by until his claim to the throne is championed, a turn of events which finds him very unwilling to exchange pasture for palace. Sung in English. Revival.

Performers Rebecca Caine, Mary Hegarty, Alice Coote, Peter Bronder, Nicholas Sears.
Music Mozart. Lyrics Pietro Metastasio. Design Frank Higgins. Conductor Paul Goodwin. Lighting Tina MacHugh. Translation Amanda Holden. Director David McVicar.
