Idomeneo Refracted


The Opera People's film adaptation of Mozart's early opera Idomeneo unfolds in an empty theatre where five spirits are drawn to a ghost light. They relive the story of Idomeneo, which Mozart originally based on the Homeric tale of King Idomeneo of Crete.

Shot at Wild Rice's theatre in Funan mall, the film opera features Jonathan Charles Tay, Felicia Teo Kaixin, Joyce Lee Tung, Teng Xiang Ting and Leslie Tay, who are accompanied by Beatrice Lin on the piano. It is directed by Edith Podesta with music direction by Lien Boon Hua.
