With The Seraglio, Mozart was conscious of his Viennese audience’s fascination with all things eastern and he up-ends all possible stereotyping in his singspiel. If you expect tyranny from everyone who frightens you, look closer at the Pasha.
ETO’s period production of The Seraglio is a charming confection with a beating heart.
Sung in English. With English surtitles.

The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) is, for many, Kurt Weill’s masterpiece. Closed down by the Nazi authorities in 1933 and not performed for many years, this is a piece about those who are left behind.
Conducted by James Holmes, and directed by ETO’s James Conway, The Silver Lake – A Winter’s Tale (Der Silbersee) promises to be a compelling night in the theatre, with astonishing music.
Sung in German with narration in English. With English surtitles.
