Is it possible to present a more perfect cast for the “Abduction from the Seraglio”? We don’t think so! Diana Damrau is almost unrivalled in the role of Konstanze, and tenor Rolando Villazón was born to play the sensitive Belmonte. In addition, the “Abduction” is filled with numbers featuring many characteristics of German romantic music and as such, they are catchy and readily absorbed. These attractions made this opera one of Mozart’s most successful during his lifetime. With this work we continue our series of gradually - with exceptional casts - presenting all the great Mozart operas. Welcome to our 2014 Baden-Baden Gala!
