Editorial Reviews

Libretto by JOHANN GOTTLIEB STEPHANIE D.J.
Based on the text by CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH BRETZNER
Belmont und Constanze Oder die Entführung Aus Dem Serail

Bassa Selim: EMMERICH SCHÄFFER
Konstanze: AGA WINSKA
Blonde: ELISABETH HELLSTRÖM
Belmonte: RICHARD CROFT
Pedrillo: BENGT-OLA MORGNY
Osmin: TAMÁS SZÜLE

After an act of piracy onboard the ship of the Spanish nobleman Belmonte, Lostados, son of the Commandant of Oran, Constanze, who is betrothed to Belmonte, and her maid Blondchen, along with Belmonte's manservant Pedrillo, who is engaged to Blondchen, fell into the hands of pirates. All three have been bought from the slave market by the wealthy Pasha Selim, a Spanish renegade (a convert to Islam from Christianity) and brought to his palace. Pedrillo has succeeded in sending word of their whereabouts to Belmonte.

Kultur is proud to present Mozart from the intimate setting of Sweden's Drottningholm Court Theatre, dating back to 1766, providing a perfect stage for these operas and featuring excellent casts and superb directors, accompanied by period instruments for a truly authentic experience. 'For true Mozart stick with Drottningholm.' Gramophone

'Excellent standard... notable for the clarity of the period-instrument sound and for a production wholly appropriate to the tiny Drottningholm space.' Gramophone

Chorus and Orchestra of the Drottningholm Court Theatre
Conducted by ARNOLD ÖSTMAN
Stage Direction by HARALD CLEMEN
Costumes by BÖRJE EDH
Directed and Produced for TV by THOMAS OLOFSSON

I wanted to give a really nice present to my wife, and took advantage of a casual remark she made about Entfuhring -- that it is such a nice opera, but seldom seen in the US. So I went to Amazon, and voila - a lovely present.
She loved it, and so did I. All the voices are perfect, and all the acting, scenes, the whole performance -- like Mozart would have wanted.

I found this a very fine production of Mozart's masterwork "The Abduction from the seraglio". What can we say about the music but that it is Mozart at his best, his second master opera (of the seven he wrote in the last decade of his life) and therefore some of the most beautiful music ever composed. The production is lively and colorful, with exquisite sets and costumes: one exception: why is Pasha Selim dressed in western-style clothes when he first appears? Kurt Moll's performance is excellent as usual and I also liked Lillian Watson as a very funny Blondie. The opera is sung in the original German, with English subtitles.

I saw this on a public TV brodcast in my home country of Guatemala when I was 16 or 17 years old, and I just fell in love with it. After a lot of searching around I was able to find this beatifull preformance here, after16 years I get to experience it again.

Thanks.

This is an excellent production of Die Entfuhrung. In this performance it is Kurt Moll who steals the show as Osmin. With his stunning bass voice and his inspired and comic stage presence. A truly great performance by him. The other singers are all top notch. And Solti's conducting is very good.

I was very much looking forward to this video based on the reviews, and based on having other opera videos from the same venue -- Covent Garden with Solti. However, it's my first time ever listening to Seraglio and I wanted to have decent audio, which unfortunately this does not deliver.
