Opera Omaha’s ‘Abduction at the Seraglio’ This Week
February 3rd, 2020
Omaha, NEâ€”Opera Omaha will present The Abduction from the Seraglio next weekend, another example of how easily classic works of music and theater can find a home in more modern settingsâ€”especially when theyâ€™re written by Mozart. Opera Omahaâ€™s production is set in Germanyâ€™s Weimar Republic, in a club where Belmonte must rescue his beloved Konstanze. Jack Swanson plays the role of the hero.
The Abduction will be Conducted by Gary Thor Wedow, and Director Alison Moritz had a major part in the original production design of this interpretation. Costume design is new and original to Opera Omaha. From design detail, to the singersâ€™ stage presence, to Mozartâ€™s pace and humor, The Abduction shows the versatility of contemporary opera production.
This is an all-debut cast for Opera Omaha, including Conductor and Director.
Opera Omahaâ€™s production of The Abduction from the Seraglio is this weekend, Friday, February 7 at 7:30pm and the 9th at 2:00pm. For more information, visit OperaOmaha.org.
