Mozart: Die Entführung aus dem Serail DVD (Nederlands Opera)

Johan Simons feisty production is an intelligently innovative account of Mozarts comic tale of abduction, love, loyalty and forgiveness. Kurt Rydls Osmin is hilarious, with just the right edge of latent thuggery; Mojca Erdmanns smart and cheeky Blonde sports a red riding coat, high latex boots and a belt that she is not afraid to use on the men! Laura Aikins Konstanze, torn between true love and obligation, reveals a vast range of human emotions and Edgaras Montvidas Belmonte portrays his coming-of-age with clarity and genuine charisma. The performance is whipped up to a feverish pitch in the pit by Constantinos Carydis, the orchestra and chorus responding with fleet virtuosity. This ground-breaking performance delivers everything one could wish for from a Mozart opera, combining thrilling energy with a profound sense of lyrical beauty and truth.
