Known for Mozart’s fizziest and funniest compositions, Belmonte, and his sweetheart Konstanze have passionate and difficult music, their servants, Pedrillo and Blonde, have the wittiest.
Mozart's The Seraglio (the hareem) will be sung by English National Opera at Saffron Hall on Saturday, November 2 and we have a pair of tickets for a reader to win.
Known for an opera with some of Mozart's fizziest and funniest music, this was the composer's first real success in the theatre. He was aware of his Viennese audience's fascination with all things eastern. It was 1782 and he was 25.
Belmonte, and his sweetheart Konstanze have passionate and difficult music, their servants, Pedrillo and Blonde, have the wittiest. Konstanze has been kidnapped by the Pasha and she takes a liking to him.
