English Touring Opera present a season of Kings and Queens in the battle for love, loyalty and power with each opera featuring a large chorus and live orchestra.
Returning from the Trojan war and in the midst of a storm, King Idomeneo promises the raging seas he will sacrifice the first person he meets in return for safe passage.
