Opera Ritalia: "The Abduction from the Seraglio"
The Abduction from the Seraglio is Mozart's amusing tale of a Turkish ruler and his passionate pursuit of his beautiful prisoner. A coproduction of Maestro Beckmann and Carol Castel of the Delaware Valley Opera Company.
"Mozart’s creation, The Abduction from the Seraglio, is considered a musical masterpiece in the realm of opera. From the first measure, played by the strings, it is clear that we are listening to Mozart’s music and you will want to join the singers as they soar with his lyrical melodies." -- Kathleen Beckmann, Conductor
"The Abduction from the Seraglio is a work of pure Mozart genius and one with extremely challenging vocals. It is a story beautifully balanced in its dramatic and comic views of humankind and is comprised of delightfully amusing scenes, beautiful arias, and rollicking, rhythmic ensembles all twisted together to create a masterful work of entertainment." -- Carol Castel, Stage Director
