Oh No! Captured by pirates and sold to the Pasha of Istanbul for his harem! Constanza, purchased with her maid Blondchen and their manservant, Pedrillo, has all but given up hope when Belmonte, her noble fiancé, appears with a plan to help them all escape. Both Pasha Selim and his vicious harem overseer, Osmin, have been smitten with the two exotic Western beauties, but the ladies continually reject the affections of their new owners. Belmonte gains entrance to the harem disguised as an architect and puts his plan into action. With a comic plot full of disguises, misplaced ladders, and wine laced with sleeping potions, Mozart’s sparkling music bubbles along to the surprising finale where nobility prevails over bitterness and revenge.
