Lucio Silla, the dictator of Rome, desires as his wife Giunia, who is betrothed to the banished Cecilio. Cecilio has secretly returned to Rome; the first act ends with the reunion of the lovers. The second act is devoted to a conspiracy against Silla, in which Cecilio takes part. The conspiracy fails, and Cecilio is arrested. In the third act, Cecilio is condemned to death — a fate that Giunia is prepared to share with him. But at the end, after a pathetic accusation of Silla by Giunia before the assembled senate and people, Silla, suddenly showing himself to be a man of noble heart, transforms himself from a dictator into a citizen, and gives up any objections to a wedding.
The Chicago premiere of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's passionate story of love, power, bloody conspiracies and revenge. Directed and designed by COT General Director Andreas Mitisek and conducted by the acclaimed Francesco Milioto, the opera, was written by the musical prodigy as a teenager for Milan's Teatro Regio Ducal in 1772. When Lucio Silla (loosely based on Roman general and statesman about Lucius Conelius Sulla Felix, one of the most hated Roman consuls during the first century) is denied the heart of Gunia, the daughter of his arch enemy, he commits his considerable power and influence to manipulate matters in his favor. He soon discovers that his are not the only plots and conspiracies hidden in the streets of Rome. This saga of deceit, love and intrigue is punctuated by awe-inspiring arias and ravishing melodies.

Led by Principal Guest Conductor Nicholas Kraemer, the evening's music celebrates Bach's extraordinary range of musical expression.
