The Seraglio

by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The Seraglio

Event Information


Running time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Performed on Mon 21 Oct

This autumn English Touring Opera returns to Bath with Mozart’s The Seraglio and Kurt Weill’s The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale. The Seraglio is a light comedy with emotional truth and The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale is a poignant story with a sharp edge of satire.

“ETO is a jewel in the country’s operatic crown” WhatsOnStage

A period production of Mozart’s masterpiece

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 strange Pasha who rules by reason – he, of course, never sings, unlike his bumptious young rival, the boy from Seville.

Conducted by John Andrews, Stephen Medcalf directs ETO’s period production of The Seraglio, a charming confection with a beating heart.

Sung in English with English surtitles
