Description Mozart wrote Mitridate re di Ponto in 1770 when he was just 14 years old. It's a work in which one dazzling solo aria follows another, many of them uncannily foreshadowing tunes from Mozart's later operas and displaying the teenage composer's capacity for musical empathy with his characters.
