Mozart's Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) is an opera "Singspiel" in three acts with spoken rather than sung dialogue. This DVD shows the impeccable performance of the majestic Teatro della Pergola Florence. The tenors Rainer Trost (Belmonte) and Mehrzad Montazeri (Pedrillo) sing with convincing excellence. The most demanding parts are sung with effortless passion by Eva Mei (Constanze). Her aria 'Martern aller Arten' is overwhelming; with the singer's voice fusing beautifully with the solo instruments. This Italian production is admirable with all its colourful decorations and costumes in an oriental style. The music of Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail includes some of the composer's most spectacular and difficult arias. In most of the scenes it reaches huge emotional depth and complexity. The world famous conductor Zubin Mehta who is known for his flamboyant and forceful performance gives this production its special flair. Together with this excellent conductor and the fabulous singers, this concert promises to be an outstanding listening pleasure for the audience.
