Description Reviews
This production, performed in the Harem of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, is one-third documentary and two-thirds filmed opera. This fascinating film revolves around a staging of Mozart's first popular success, Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

The film breaks up the musical sequences with footage of rehearsals and comments by the opera director Elijah Moshinksy who provides fascinating historical and musical insights.

The Turkish setting is breathtaking, and the film provides some illuminating biographical information about Mozart's life during the composition of The Abduction, his most popular opera during his lifetime.
