With The Seraglio, Mozart was conscious of his Viennese audience’s fascination with all things eastern and he up-ends all possible stereotyping in his singspiel.
If you expect tyranny from everyone who frightens you, look closer at the Pasha. ETO’s period production of The Seraglio is a charming confection with a beating heart.
Sung in English with English surtitles.
