In 2006, the Mozart22 project took place in honor of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. It was a major project to recreate the twenty-two operas and oratorios composed by Mozart. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the production of Ascanio in Alba at that time. The Salzburg Festival of 2006 gathered the best specialists of the Mozart repertoire - singers, conductors and directors - to interpret this unique selection of works. Idomeneo tells the story of the famous king of Crete. The work, a true product of the Age of Enlightenment, Was played for the first time in 1781 in Munich. In this production, we find the talented tenor Ramón Vargas, who plays the title role. He is accompanied by the Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená, who sings the role of Idamante. Sir Roger Norrington is the musical director of this beautiful opera.
