People trafficking across the seas is nothing new and sex has long been part of its matrix.  Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio deals with conflicts between nationalities and cultures with the lightest and most sophisticated of touches.  The beautiful, exotically colourful score includes some of his most brilliant, and extremely virtuosic arias.

“Musically and dramatically, the production could hardly be bettered, with the Irish Chamber Orchestra under Peter Whelan’s expertise delivering superblyEmer O’KellySunday Independent
