Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

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


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. 
"My target audience is young people of high school and university age," says Miklós H. Vecsei, himself of Mozartian youthfulness, of his first opera-directing effort. "My mantra is "impact", which I would like to achieve with special 4D technology." Part of the OperaAdventure programme, the production is sure to be fresh and sometimes a bit irreverent toward operatic traditions also thanks to a new Hungarian translation by Dániel Varró.
