Mozart’s first operatic masterpiece, comic but passionate, written in the fervor of love for his soon-to-be wife, Konstanze.  Full of spectacular arias and charming “Turkish” orchestral effects. Our scene opens with Mozart, age 25, living in Vienna, newly released from bondage to the Archbishop of Salzburg, and perhaps best of all, living in Madam Weber’s household, where her daughter, Konstanze, peers speculatively at this young and famous musician.

How best to make his name in Vienna, home to the Prussian court? An opera, of course! Starring a character named – Konstanze – who sings great arias and is in need of rescue.

The resulting opera, with its “Turkish” themes of the exotic East and maiden-stealing pirates, became the most popular of the composer’s operas performed in his lifetime. And it still delights to this day.
