A comic tale of stolen love as only Mozart could write it.
A damsel in distress is captured by Turkish pirates and awaits her fate in the harem of the Pasha Selim. Witness the charming antics of her fiancé and his servant on their journey to rescue their beloveds as this colorful comedy unfolds.
James Robinson’s innovative production of Mozart’s comic gem brings the action to the decadent railcars of the 1920s Orient Express, making a triumphant return to HGO after nearly a decade.
