Apollo & Hyacinthus was written in 1767 when Mozart was 11 years old, and premiered at the Benedictine University in Mozart’s hometown of Salzburg. Father Rufinus Widl wrote the libretto in Latin, taken from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, but changed the story to eliminate the controversial homosexual themes in the the original myth. Though the performance was a success, the opera received only one performance during Mozart’s lifetime. American Baroque Opera Co. is excited to present the first period instrument performance of the work in North America.
