Mozart - Idomeneo Premier

Time: Thursday Jan 29, 1778

Place: Cuvilliés Theatre, Munich, Germany

Details: Idomeneo's first dress rehearsal was coinciding with the 25th birthday of Mozart. His father Leopold had arrived with Nannerl in Munich sometime between then and the premiere. The first night-the only fair night-went really well. Mozart had achieved the popularity he had wished for, but for another 5 years the opera would not be performed again.
