If Baroque music is the expression of the "theatre of passion", then what about Mozart's operas?
Do you want something tragic? Listen to Pamina sing "Ach ich fühl's".
Something charming? "La ci darem la mano" by Don Giovanni and Zerlina.
Something ill-fated? "Fuor del mar" by Idomeneo. Something mocking? "Non più andrai farfallone amoroso" by Figaro.
And what about the ensembles which the brilliant Wolfgang Amadeus puts to music better than anyone else?

Gala Mozart presented by Le Concert d'Astrée, started off their tour at the world famous Paris-based Théâtre des Champs-Elysées on October 13th 2017, and are currently preparing for their upcoming performance which will be held at the Bahrain National Theatre. The evening carries the beauty of Mozart's music, which reflects the depth of human emotion. The orchestra leader, Maestro Emmanuelle Haïm, presents us with five exceptional singers and Le Concert d'Astrée, an extraordinary concert celebrating Mozart in a joyful and beautiful way. Le Concert d'Astrée is today one of the finest ensembles of baroque music and offers its performances in the most prominent international theaters and music festivals around the world.
