Idomeneo is a thunderstorm of emotions.
Mozart describes with all the colors of the human feelings how the honest king is anguished and stormy against the gods.
Listen to the aria "Fuor del mar" to get an idea on how he depicts the inner emotions with sofisticated psychology.
In this aria Idomeneo, after the shipwreck, sings: "outside the sea, I have a sea inside of me. And the second is more threatening than the first."
In the music we can hear the waves of both the seas and the anguish and anger of the king.
Awesome melodies, amazing harmonies, surprising chromatisms, sudden changes of tonalities bring the player and the listener to the archetips world, with magnificient beauty.
And Mozart could not end his "opera seria" with the implicit optimism glowing on all his operas: Neptune says "Love won. Innocence is rewarded ".
