The production was very well done. Even though it was sung in English, there were video screens on each side of the stage showing the dialogue. There was also a lecture before the opera for those who wanted to attend. Not knowing that this was available, we stumbled upon it half way throught the lecture. It would have been nice to have known about it in advance. I would highly recommend this entertaining opera and after all it is Mozart -- what's not to like!!
A nobleman and his servant attempt to rescue their beloved noblewoman and her servant from the pasha’s harem. They drug the guard with wine and fortify their own spirits with song, but the pasha catches them anyway. Miraculously, he sets everyone free, and all sing his praise, except the frustrated guard.
