Mozart in Turkey Film Poster


Acclaimed opera and film director Elijah Moshinsky is seen at work with an international cast during the staging and filming of a magnificent production of Mozart’s ‘The Abduction from the Seraglio’ (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), set within the Harem of the Topkapi Palace, Istanbul. This award-winning and highly innovative film captures exquisite performances from a brilliant young cast under the baton of Sir Charles Mackerras, whilst also providing insights into the history of this delightful opera from the Age of Enlightenment, along with back-stage glimpses of the creative process. First broadcast on BBC2. “Mozart in Turkey is a beautifully shot, riveting film, and is lovingly performed. It’s a joy.” - Richard Fawkes, Classical Music magazine. UK 1999 Mick Csáky 90m
