16 September @ Government House Ballroom ·
Presented by Music on the Terrace ·
Mozart himself conducted the first performance of this work in Vienna, and it has become a favourite in opera houses around the world.
The hero Belmonte, assisted by his servant Pedrillo, attempts to rescue his beloved Konstanze from the harem of Pasha Selim. In this performance we present a chamber music version, an opera without singers, perfectly suited to the intimacy of Government House Ballroom and featuring outstanding guest performers and resident musicians of the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.
Featuring music from Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio
Phillip Lambert – Narrator
Nick Deutsch – Oboe
David Thomas – Clarinet
Lyndon Watts – Bassoon
Marie-Luise Neunecker – French horn
