Abduction from the Seraglio. Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart ushered in a new era in music history with this first of his operatic masterpieces. It tells of the rescue of the young Spaniard Konstanze and her friends by her fiance Belmonte from the Ottoman Palace of Pasha Selim. Mozart transcends the popular "Turkish Music" fashion of the time with an opera of great emotional depth. Humanism triumphs at the end. Virtuoso singing and brilliant orchestration of a kind previously unheard in Vienna prompted the Emperor Joseph II to exclaim "Too many notes"!
Sung in German with English dialogue and supertitles.
