Highlights: Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail
Crafted in 1782, Mozart's Singspiel, presented in three acts, offers a delightful fusion of humor and innovation. In Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio), we are immersed in the romantic entanglements of a quartet enamored with Constance and Blonde, namely Belmonte and his loyal servant, Pedrillo. Interestingly, the role of the antagonist is not assigned to the Pasha, but to his formidable steward, the villainous Osmin.
Soprano Albina Shagimuratova embodies the gentle Constance, while tenor Levy Sekgapane assumes the role of the valiant Belmonte. The vocal talents of Blonde, Osmin, and Pedrillo are skillfully portrayed by Florie Valiquette, Sulkhan Jaiani, and Sahy Ratia, respectively. This formidable ensemble is further complemented by the captivating ensemble, Le Concert de la Loge and the Fiat Cantus Choir, under the adept baton of conductor Julien Chauvin.
For those seeking a captivating blend of laughter and emotion, this is your opportunity to see a composition as such at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
Story: Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail
The story of Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) takes place in Turkey. The Spanish nobleman Belmonte is trying to save his beloved Constance, who has been kidnapped by the Pasha Selim. With the help of his valet Pedrillo and Constance's maid Blonde, Belmonte breaks into the Pasha's palace and orchestrates their escape. However, Selim is lenient and lets them go. The opera, composed in 1782, combines sublime music, humor, and theatricality. It is regarded as a Mozart masterpiece and, in its time, set a new standard for comic opera.
A superb Turkish delight in the rose and gold setting of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. Not to be missed!
