Mozart's opera La clemenza di Tito (The Clemency of Titus) was commissioned to commemorate the coronation of Emperor Leopold II as King of Bohemia and premiered in Prague on September 6, 1791. The libretto was written by Caterino Mazzolà and is based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus. The opera portrays themes of forgiveness, mercy, and political intrigue. Despite its relatively limited success during Mozart's lifetime, La clemenza di Tito has gained recognition as a remarkable work of Mozart's late operatic repertoire, showcasing his masterful command of vocal writing and dramatic storytelling.
International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.
If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
