Mozartâs early comedy overflows with charm and exquisite melodies. The light-hearted story of the abduction of Constanze by Pasha Selim and of her loverâs attempts to free her, is set in the last days of the Ottoman Empire. Mozart wrote it at the height of the 18th century craze for all things oriental, just before his marriage to his own Constanze. The heroine has some of the most dazzling soprano music ever written, and the themes of young love and forgiveness make for a gloriously uplifting evening. Sung in English.Music Mozart.
