A Theatrical Ode to One of the Greatest Cinematic Eras!
February 8 &10, Mahalia Jackson Theater
Captured and sold to Pascha Selim and forced to work in his nightclub, The Seraglio, Constanza, Blondchen, and Pedrillo, had all but given up hope when Belmonte, Constanza’s fiancé, appears with a plan to help them all escape. Both Pasha Selim and his vicious nightclub manager, Osmin, have been smitten with the two exotic beauties, but the ladies continually reject the affections of their new owners. Belmonte gains entrance to the nightclub disguised as a musician and puts his plan into action. With a comic plot full of disguises, misplaced ladders, and wine laced with sleeping potions, Mozart’s sparkling music bubbles along to the surprising finale where nobility prevails over bitterness and revenge.
