Charles H. Parsons
American Record Guide, November 2014

It’s a festive production that must have been a thrill to attend. It certainly was the hit of the 2013 Salzburg Festival! © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

MOZART, W.A.: Entführung aus dem Serail (Die) (Salzburg Festival, 2013) (NTSC) 102183
MOZART, W.A.: Entführung aus dem Serail (Die) (Salzburg Festival, 2013) (Blu-ray, HD) 108102

Adrian Marthaler’s production reimagines the opera as a modern-day tale of lust and temptation set in the rarefied world of high fashion…[his] updating is more imaginative than simply giving us a lecture on Christian-Muslim relations.

Javier Camarena makes a nicely light, lyrical Belmonte, and there is a lively supporting pair in the Blonde and Pedrillo of Rebecca Nelsen and Thomas Ebenstein. The production ends glamorously with a fashion parade. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

John Yohalem
Opera Today, August 2014

Everybody sings well if not precisely at top star level.

Hans Graf and the Camerata Salzburg revel in this wonderful score, and the flow of melodious delight is perfect for any evening’s entertainment. © 2014 Opera Today Read complete review
