Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio)
MAMAMATINÉE ’19


Singspiel in three acts, in Hungarian, with Hungarian and English surtitles
A gripping plot – in this case the story of young lovers fighting to escape the seraglio – is in and of itself one of the keys to a successful dramatic work. However, the varied music written by a twenty-something Mozart, with its freshness and a few oriental touches, makes the singspiel The Abduction from the Seraglio completely irresistible. Staging his first opera production is Miklós H. Vecsei, a director of Mozartian youthfulness.  The production is sure to be fresh and sometimes a bit irreverent toward operatic traditions also thanks to video projection group Glowing Bulbs and a new Hungarian translation by Dániel Varró.



If we take Zoltán Kodály at his word, musical education commences not in the womb, but even before the child’s own mother is born.

Once again on Mother’s Day, the Opera House extends a special invitation to young mothers: by showing a medical certification of pregnancy, expectant mothers will be able to receive two 300-forint tickets for the matiné performance of Háry János.
