ATLANTA OPERA: THE ABDUCTION FROM THE SERAGLIO
Belmonte, with his sidekick Pedrillo, sets off to Turkey to rescue his betrothed Konstanze. The caper plays out in hilarious, action-packed circumstances wherein our heroes and heroines must outwit their captors, particularly the fiendish Osmin, overseer of the Pasha’s harem. The Abduction from the Seraglio is a farcical, colorful romance, and was one of Mozart’s first successes as a composer.
Music Director Arthur Fagen will conduct. The comedic genius Kevin Burdette (The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance) will return to Atlanta as Osmin. The Abduction from the Seraglio was last seen in Atlanta in 2006.
