Join us on the 25th October for the English Touring Opera: Mozart's The Seraglio at Snape Maltings.
With The Seraglio, Mozart’s first real success in the theatre, the youthful genius was conscious of his Viennese audience’s fascination with all things eastern. The harem, or Seraglio, was its centre, surrounded by well-worn walls. Within, a young girl is clearly fascinated by a Pasha who rules by reason – he never sings, unlike his bumptious young rival, the boy from Seville.
A charming confection with a beating heart, ETO’s period production of The Seraglio, directed by Stephen Medcalf and conducted by John Andrews, promises to be a good night out for all.
