Notes and Editorial Reviews

An attack on the ship of the Spanish nobleman Belmonte causes Constanze, who is betrothed to Belmonte, her maid Blondchen, and Belmonte's manservant Pedrillo, who is engaged to Blondchen, to fall into the hands of pirates. All three have been bought from the slave market by the wealthy Pasha Selim, a Spanish renegade (a convert to Islam from Christianity) and brought to his palace. Pedrillo has succeeded in sending word of their whereabouts to Belmonte, who must move quickly to save his beloved from the advances of the infatuated Pasha.

Kultur is proud to present Mozart from the intimate setting of Sweden’s Drottningholm Court Theatre, dating back to 1766, providing a perfect stage for these operas and featuring excellent
Read more casts and superb directors, accompanied by period instruments for a truly authentic experience.

“For true Mozart stick with Drottningholm.”
-Gramophone

“Excellent standard… notable for the clarity of the period-instrument sound and for a production wholly appropriate to the tiny Drottningholm space.”
-Gramophone
