Further details below: Ticket Description Regular Price Hacienda Price The Abduction from the Seraglio by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Mozart ushered in a new era in music history with this first of his operatic masterpieces. It tells of the rescue of the young Spaniard Konstanze and her English maid Blonde by their fiancés Belmonte and Pedrillo from the Ottoman Palace of Pasha Selim and his ferocious henchman, Osmin. Mozart transcends the popular “Turkish Music” fashion of the time with an opera of great emotional depth, combined with lighthearted scenes of hilarious comedy. Virtuoso singing and brilliant orchestration previously unheard in Vienna prompted Emperor Joseph II (of movie Amadeus fame) to exclaim “Too many notes!” Sung in German with English dialogue and supertitles. Performance dates: September 29th and 30th, October 6th and 7th. $90 and $42 seat selections are not applicable for this Special Offer. $75 $65 $52 $60 $52 $41.60 The Barber of Seville By Gioachino Rossini Based on Beaumarchais’ classic French comedy, the opera tells of the clever barber Figaro and how he assists the noble Count Almaviva in winning the hand of his beloved Rosina by outwitting her lecherous guardian, Doctor Bartolo. Riotous comedy, memorable arias and spectacular ensembles abound in what is arguably the greatest Italian opera buffa ever written. Of Barber, Beethoven told Rossini: “I congratulate you. It will be played as long as Italian opera exists”.
