Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail
Director Stefan Herheim staged Mozart's 1782 opera "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" for the Bregenz Festival. It was originally commissioned by the Austrian emperor, but it's told that when the emperor first heard it he said it had too many notes. Mozart responded by saying it had the right number of notes - and its huge success seems to confirm his stance. Part of the Never in New York Festival.
