A performance based on one of the most famous stage works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The story takes place at the Turkish court of the mighty Bassa Selim, where a Spanish nobleman, Belmonte, comes to find his fiancée, Konstanze, kidnapped by pirates. Servants Blonde and Pedrillo also take part in the escape, and they primary task is to defeat Osmin – a dangerous guardian of the Seraglio.

Mozart’s set design, costumes and music are filled with a colourful Orient, especially the Turkish culture, which was popular back then in Vienna, where the composer lived. Mozart, like the Viennese, enjoyed the Turkish market and goods from Turkey: coffee, dried fruit, clothes; and in music he liked to stylize Turkish music, as in the famous A Turkish March from the piano sonata. Perhaps that is why one of the characters of his other “oriental” opera said: not only Europe, but also Asia can bring noble souls.
