(Die Entführung aus dem Serail)
Updated to the Roaring Twenties, this riotous staging marries the brilliance of Mozart's comic gem with the flair of a classic Hollywood comedy.
En route from Istanbul to Paris, two beautiful damsels in distress are held captive aboard the luxurious Orient Express by a notorious Ottoman royal. It's up to their faithful lovers to rescue them before it's too late!
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Libretto: Gottlieb Stephanie
World premiere: July 16, 1782, Burgtheater, Vienna
