Idomeneo by W.A. Mozart
Late in the year 1780, Mozart was hard at work on a brand new opera that could easily have gone out of style before it was even finished.  Idomeneo was conceived as an opera seria, a highly-stylized musical recipe that had been the "in thing" with European aristocrats for decades.  And, by the time the Elector of Bavaria asked Mozart for Idomeneo, the fashion was clearly fading.

But Mozart was 24 years old, at the top of his game, and undaunted by current trends. If the elector wanted an opera seria, Mozart would write one. Using a traditional libretto based on classical myth, Mozart produced a score that surpassed the very genre it was rooted in.   In Idomeneo, the set-piece arias, dry recitatives and familiar, mythical characters are all there.  But so are deeply emotional ensembles, lyrical and inventive arias, and music and characters so fresh, that in this new example of an old style, the familiar conventions burst wide open. ~http://www.npr.org/
