Tuesday 24th September - Mozart in Turkey

Mozart In Turkey

A Friends, Associates and Benefactors special event 

Film screening with introductory talk and Q&A following the film with Director, Mick Csaky.

Mozart in Turkey is a film of and about Mozart's opera, The Abduction from the Seraglio. One third documentary and two thirds filmed theatre, this fascinating experiment by filmmaker Mick Csaky and opera director Elijah Moshinsky revolves around a staging of Mozart's first popular success.

Musical sequences are interwoven with footage of rehearsals and interviews which provide historical context. The Turkish setting is breathtaking, and the film offers a unique opportunity for Mozart devotees to see one of his works spring from fantasy to reality.

The production, performed in the harem of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, features exquisite set design and a top-notch cast, with Sir Charles Mackerras conducting the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

This screening is timed to coincide with English Touring Opera’s production of The Seraglio, which comes to Exeter for two nights in November. 

Visit The Globe Inn, Chagford to book supper at the venue before the screening.

Please note, there are steep steps to the venue.
