Singspiel by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The production of Die Entführung aus dem Serail by the Grand Théâtre de Genève will revisit the somewhat outdated “turquerie” of the lyric tradition with a critical view of today, a view immersed in a world profoundly different from that of Mozart. Under the pen of the writer, activist and former Turkish political prisoner Aslı Erdoğan and in the concept of the Belgian theatre-maker Luk Perceval, the dialogues of Singspiel disappear and the play takes on consonant and dissonant resonances, both epic and of an intimate sadness. “We are all locked in the seraglio of our lives,” says Luk Perceval. In a radical dramatic gesture, which makes this production as much a theatrical event as it is a lyrical one, singers and actors interact with a new coherence. Mozart’s music takes on an unexpected dimension and becomes a reflection on the shadowy, lonely and alienating part of our human lives.
