The Abduction from the Seraglio


The Abduction from the Seraglio (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.

Review quotes from previous productions:

That the little room shook during the Act I sextet and finale only demonstrates that PopUp Opera is definitely ready for bigger stages to demonstrate its substantial talents… Whether you love opera, or you’ve never been to one, be sure to catch this.” Time Out ★★★★★

Everybody in this cast throws themselves into the music with a combination of technical excellence and personality, priming everything with great heaping dollops of emotion and sincerity… I can’t really imagine anyone who wouldn’t enjoy this.” London City Nights

The small cast of six tell Mozart’s absurd story with comic brilliance and elegant charm.”

The Pop-up team prove that this is not an inaccessible genre reserved for an elite few, but an intimate, jovial affair brimming with laughs and wonders from beginning to end.” The Upcoming
