Having disposed of his enemies, the Roman ruler Lucio Silla is now all-powerful. Now he wants to marry the daughter of his slain enemy Giunia, but underestimates how much she hates him. In Lucio Silla, Mozart and his librettist Gamerra tie Silla's predatory passion to his tyrannical behaviour, thus anticipating romantic sensibilities. Echoing the twilight and melancholy pages of the score, director Tobias Kratzer draws on gothic and contemporary imagery from film and television.
