- Ian Page founded UK-based opera company Classical Opera in 1997. The company specialises in repertoire of the Classical period and performs with its own period orchestra. Page has championed the lesser-known works of Mozart and his contemporaries, with projects including the world premiere of the ‘original’ version of Mozart’s Mitridate, re di Ponto, the world premiere of a new completed version of Zaide, the UK premiere of Gluck’s La clemenza di Tito and his own new performing edition of Thomas Arne’s Artaxerxes in The Royal Opera’s production, which saw the opera’s return to Covent Garden after more than 150 years.
