This autumn English Touring Opera will tour Mozart’s The Seraglio and Kurt Weill’s The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee). Two plays-with-music (singspiel), The Seraglio is a light comedy with emotional truth, and The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) is a poignant story with a sharp edge of satire.

With The Seraglio, Mozart was conscious of his Viennese audience’s fascination with all things eastern.

For the characters Belmonte and Konstanze, Mozart wrote his most passionate music; for their servants, Pedrillo and Blonde, he wrote his wittiest.

Mozart up-ends all possible stereotyping in his singspiel. If you meet a more independent and assured maid than Blonde, maybe take cover; if you expect tyranny from everyone who frightens you, look closer at the Pasha.

A charming confection with a beating heart, ETO’s period production of The Seraglio will be a good night out for all. It will be sung in English.
