DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL (The Abduction from the Seraglio)
Pop-up Opera Company
Pop-up Opera return to the Regal Theatre with Die Entführung, Mozart’s comedy about two young men, Belmonte and Pedrillo, attempting to rescue their lovers Konstanze and Blonde from an Ottoman harem. All kinds of high jinks and mishaps occur as they don disguises, make merry with the servants and sing an ode to Bacchus god of wine, in an attempt to save their beloveds. The music contains some of Mozart’s most spectacular and virtuoso arias, and is richly embroidered with his interpretation of Turkish music. An opulent and highly entertaining treat.
Pop-Up Opera is an innovative touring opera company showcasing exciting new operatic talent (professional opera singers in the first stage of promising careers). Their aim is to make opera enjoyable, broadening its appealmaking it fun, fresh and intimate.
The opera is sung in the original language with captions in English. They paraphrase the words to keep the audience abreast of the story.
