Die Entführung aus dem Serail

Mozart’s sparkling comedy about a young Spanish nobleman and his faithful sidekick breaking into a Turkish harem and freeing their fiancées is among the most popular operas of all time. Stanford Olsen and Mariella Devia star as the lovers Belmonte and Konstanze, with Matti Salminen taking on the vocal challenges of the harem overseer Osmin. James Levine’s conducting is as joyful as it is stylish.
