The Abduction From The Seraglio: Program Notes from Director Robert B. Driver


It has been 13 years since I last staged The Abduction from the Seraglio in Philadelphia in a traditional, period production at the Academy of Music. My first experience with the opera was as an Assistant Director with the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich in the 1960s, which was also an elegant, traditional production in the lovely Rococo Cuvillies-Theater.
