A terrific Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail
4 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love opera and Mozart, and while not his best Die Etfuhrung Aus Dem Serail is so worth a listen, especially for Martern Aller Arten and Ha! Wie Will Ich Triumphieren and for the character of Osmin. I find myself more receptive to the 1980 production, despite Bohm's slow tempi, however this is a terrific performance regardless. The costumes and sets are suitably sumptuous, the story sparkles as does the humour and the music is brilliant and beautifully performed and conducted. The picture quality and sound are above average, and the stage direction is lively without feeling overdone. The performances are truly terrific. Belmonte is beautifully sung if a little stiff on occasions, Oliver Tobias is an imposing Pasha and Inga Nielson a beguiling- in looks and voice- Konstanze. Best of all are Lillian Watson's vocally impressive and commanding Blonde and Kurt Moll's wickedly funny and ominous Osmin(and he nails the low D in Ha! Wie Will Ich Triumphieren). Overall, terrific. 9/10 Bethany Cox
