At the age of 14, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was commissioned to compose a large, full-length opera seria, "Mitridate, Re di Ponto," for Milan's Teatro Regio Ducale.
Many distinguished composers had previously created works for this prestigious stage throughout Europe. Mozart joined them with a remarkable opera, based on a drama by the French tragedian Jean Racine.
