Emmanuel Music: Abduction from the Seraglio

  • Emmanuel Music 15 Newbury St Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

A big Mozart opera! What could be more fun? 

Emmanuel Music will present this Opera-in-Concert. In this colorful opera that "knocked everything else sideways," as the poet Goethe boldly remarked, Mozart tells the story of a kidnapping by pirates, a Turkish harem, a clever quest, a quartet of lovers, and unwavering loyalty. Infused with Emmanuel Music’s acclaimed virtuosity and innovation, this enduring opera in concert will be sung in German with English dialogue.

Pre-concert conversation at 6:45 PM with Dr. Elizabeth Seitz
