Canadian Opera Company
Composer(s): Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Claire de Sévigné
Cultures collide in Mozart’s singspiel, but real division is difficult to define. The story of European captives of a Muslim pasha in the Ottoman Empire, Abduction is ripe with the possibility of violent confrontation. But celebrated Lebanese-Canadian writer Wajdi Mouawad's direction deftly avoids caricature, and the brilliant humanity of Mozart’s characters shines in a new way.
Onstage attempt to link corners of the Mediterranean at a moment when the real world is trying, and often failing, to do the same.
