"Mozart's most instantly lovable opera - a score through which his youthful genius romps in exuberant cartwheels."

The Daily Telegraph

Why See Houston Grand Opera: The Abduction From The Seraglio?

LOVE, ONLY LOVE, CAN NOW DIRECT ME

Mozart's charming, if not somewhat vocally challenging The Abduction From The Seraglio transports us to the harem of the Pasha Selim. His newest additions are the victims of pirates, being a Spanish Lady Konstanze, her maid Blonde and Blonde's lover Pedrillo. But help is at hand, unbeknownst to her, Konstanze's fiancee Belmonte is mounting a rescue attempt, if he can get past the demented overseer Osmin first. Returning to the HGO for the first time in a decade, James Robinson's production takes us from 18th century turkey to the decadent and luxury of the Orient Express in the Jazz age, where the action plays out anew.

First seen in 1782, Die Entfuhrung is a light-hearted comedy of errors, as the wily captives seek a way out of their predicament. With plenty of panache, the story and score weave a wonderful spell, so much so, it is one of the most popular hits in the repertoire.
