Translated from the play of the same name by the great French playwright Jean Racine, this historical tragedy tells of the betrayal of King Mithridates VI. Remembered as the greatest ruler of the Greco-Persian state Pontus, he was eventually bested by Roman conquerors and a rebellious son. This story has proved popular with European artists, who besides Racine include such diverse figures as Mozart, Edna St. Vincent Millay and James Joyce.
