Mozart
Die Entführung aus dem Serail

The beloved James Levine makes his very last appearance as Met Music Director conducting an opera he long championed, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, by one of his favorite composers, Mozart. Hans-Peter König is the blustery Osmin, overseer of Pasha Selim’s harem, which includes two European women captured by pirates. One of them is Konstanze (Albina Shagimuratova), who lets the Pasha know in no uncertain terms that she would rather die than yield to him. Fortunately, her true love, Belmonte (Paul Appleby), has arrived to rescue her, but the escape is not without complications. With Kathleen Kim as Konstanze’s servant (and fellow captive) Blondchen and Brenton Ryan as Belmonte’s servant Pedrillo.
