This review is from: Mozart - Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Eva Mei - Zubin Mehta) [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a fun production of 'The Seraglio'. Osmin appears to have a pet crocodile!
Picture quality 4
Sound quality 3 - a 'thin' sound.
Sets 5 - sliding walls painted in a oriental style. Very colourful.
Music making (orchestra) 4
Clarity of storytelling 5
Acting 5 - overacting works for this lighthearted production.
Direction (camera work) 4 - a lot of cutting to the conductor and orchestra.
Singing 4 - Belmonte 4, Constanza 4, Osmin 3, Blonde 4, Pedrillo 5 and chorus 4.
Costumes 5 - 18th century European and Turkish Ottoman style.
