Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio)
Mozart's comedy about two young men, Belmonte and Pedrillo, attempting to rescue their lovers Konstanze and Blonde from an Ottoman harem. All kinds of high jinks and mishaps occur as they don disguises, make merry with the servants and sing an ode to Bacchus god of wine, in an attempt to save their beloveds. The music contains some of Mozart's most spectacular and virtuoso arias, and is richly embroidered with his interpretation of Turkish music. An opulent and highly entertaining treat.
