Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September 2017: Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The abduction from the Seraglio) – Pafos Medieval Castle – 8:00pm onwards
The Abduction from the Seraglio is in the genre of “sing-spiel”, a comic opera in the German language combining music with spoken dialogue. This genre influenced the subsequent development of German opera which until that time was overshadowed in the German-speaking part of Europe by the Italian opera.
The opera is in three acts with a libretto, based on the theatrical comedy “Belmont and Constanze”, by Christoph Friedrich Bretzner and adaptations by Gottlieb Stephanie. It premiered at the Burgtheater of Vienna on July 16, 1782 and was a huge success establishing Mozart’s reputation with the public.
Mozart created and completed this opera in one of the happiest periods of his life, a fact which is embedded in the opera itself making it one of the most popular and endearing operas of the great composer.
