Idomeneo, King of Crete, victoriously returns home from war, but destruction pursues him to his homeland. In order to be saved from drowning on the treacherous journey, he had promised Neptune to sacrifice to him the first man that he comes across. Mozart's great choral opera is a study into a crumbling world order, in which forces of nature and war have to be overcome at great personal sacrifice.
