An exciting performance by University of York Opera Society with full orchestra.
No recitatives. Spoken dialogue separating arias and ensembles of wonderful brilliance, Seraglio was an instant hit.
It is light-hearted, comic, and deeply affecting.
Some of the music for the singers requires extreme vocal virtuosity. You will not be disappointed.
The heroic Belmonte tries to rescue his beloved Konstanze from the Pasha’s country-house harem. The ending is heart-warming.
