About

Continuing Classical Opera's critically acclaimed complete cycle of Mozart operas on Signum Classics is this release of 'Zaide'. The opera is set in a totalitarian regime where a couple have fallen in love (Zaide and Gomatz), incurring the jealousy of the ruling sultan (Soliman).

One of very few of Mozartís works to be written without a commission, Mozart completed 15 numbers before abandoning the work to fulfil the commission for 'Idomeneo'. These include two searing melodramas, some superb ensembles and a sequence of arias including the heavenly 'Ruhe sanft' sung by Sophie Bevan.

Allan Clayton: Gomatz
Jacques Imbrailo: Allazim
Darren Jeffery: Osmin
Stuart Jackson: Sultan Soliman
Jonathan McGovern: Vorsinger
