Mozart wraps his characters in exquisitely virtuosic arias partnered with a colorful storyline conveyed in spoken dialogue in this youthfully optimistic and daring romp. THE ABDUCTION FROM THE SERAGLIO is the story of a lady in distress and her dashing nobleman. He seeks to rescue her, and her maid, from the passionate designs of the Pasha Selim. Mozart features a comic, yet menacing, tyrant in Osmin, the harem’s watchman, who tries to separate the lovers. Fortunately, the hero saves his sweetheart, and revenge is mercy when the Pasha Selim joyfully decides to let romance take its course. A new production designed and created by Des Moines Metro Opera in cooperation with Kentucky Opera.
