With his Singspiel "Die Entführung aus dem Serail", Mozart made a significant contribution to the establishment of an independent German opera tradition. The role of Konstanze is sung by Gloria Rehm at the 2022 International May Festival, a singer whose "extraordinary vocal and dramatic presence" (Die Deutsche Bühne) promises a special treat.

The production is directed by Uwe Eric Laufenberg, while Konrad Junghänel conducts the Hessian State Orchestra.
