Description
"It's not your mama's Mozart, but it is fascinating," wrote Opera News of this version of The Abduction From the Seraglio, Mozart's second "Deutsches Singspiel" or German-language comic opera.

"Each of the characters (except for the Pasha, a speaking role), is performed by a singer and an actor simultaneously. The actors do not merely articulate the spoken dialogue, but take on the role of a Doppelganger to the singer, conversing—occasionally even arguing—with each other about the situation at hand and the character's inner thoughts."—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Well recorded and musically excellent, with Zagrosek conducting a fresh, theatrically paced performance, which emphasizes the score's warm lyricism and favours his singers. An excellent cast they are, appropriately young and stylish, even to the occasional appoggiatura. Naglestad is an ideal Konstanze, clear-voiced yet passionate, with tautly controlled coloratura. Klink's Belmonte is equally fine, mellifluous and hardly stressed even by the runs of 'Ich baue ganz'. Ladner's Blonde is an archetypal bright-voiced soubrette … and Bracht a splendidly bluff Osmin."—Gramophone
