More than just a performance film featuring Mozart's opera, Mozart in Turkey also studies the history of opera's fascination with Turkish culture and some illuminating biographical information about Mozart's life during the composition of 'The Abduction', his most popular opera during his lifetime.

Acclaimed opera director Elijah Moshinsky is filmed at work with an international cast during the staging and filming of a magnificent production of Mozart's opera Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Harem), set within the harem of the Topkapi Palace. This remarkable film, conceived, produced and directed by Mick Csaky, combines both performance and process. It simultaneously presents a highly dramatic performance of the opera within the spectacular setting of the Topkapi Palace at the same time as documenting the entire creative process of recording of the soundtrack, rehearsing the singers and filming the production.

The film also provides fresh insights into the history of the opera and the personal life of Mozart while composing this opera - Mozart's most popular during his lifetime. Key to the success of the film is a central interview with the opera director Elijah Moshinsky explaining his very personal approach to this opera.
