Vitellia, daughter of the late Emperor, wants revenge against Tito, the current Emperor and son of the man who killed her father. She manipulates Sesto, Tito’s friend who is in love with her, to her cause. She holds off the final command, hoping Tito will pick her for his empress. Tito, however, decides to choose Sesto’s sister Servilia. When Tito finds out that his friend Annio is in love with Servilia, he rescinds his proposal and chooses Vitellia instead. Unaware that she has been named Empress, Vitellia tells Sesto to kill the ruler. A riot breaks out, Rome engulfed in flames, and the Emperor is believed to be lost. Act 2 reveals that a last minute switch saved the Emperor, who forgives everyone who plotted against him.

La Clemenza di Tito will be performed in Italian
