DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL (THE ABDUCTION FROM THE SERAGLIO) | W.A. MOZART
Mozart’s youthful comedy contains some of his finest music and most spectacular arias. Imprisoned by the Pasha Selim, Konstanze longs for her lover Belmonte to rescue her. Meanwhile her maid Blonde and Belmonte’s servant Pedrillo must outwit with the lecherous Osmin, keeper of the Harem. When Belmonte arrives their escape seems certain, but everything hinges on the clemency of the Pasha.
