Classical Opera returns to Birmingham Town Hall with a semi-staged performance of Mozart’s first full-length opera, La finta semplice. Written when the composer was just twelve years old, the opera is based on a sparkling comedy by Carlo Goldoni, and combines situations of great comic invention and genuine humour with music of extrordinary beauty, energy and psychological insight.

Ian Page directs a superb international cast of world-class young singers, headed by the rapidly emerging Swiss soprano Regula Mühlemann, whose solo recording contract with Sony Classical was recently launched with a highly acclaimed disc of Mozart arias.
