Featuring beautiful melodies, inventive musical forms, fully developed characters and a comedic plot, Mozart premiered The Abduction from the Seraglio in 1782, while a craze for all things Turkish, especially Turkish-style music, swept Western Europe. (Following “Abduction,” Mozart composed Piano Sonata no. 11 in A major, featuring the famous “rondo alla Turca.”) Performed at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona. Sung in German with English subtitles. 3 hrs 20 minutes with two intermissions.
