Mozart composed his Singspiel Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) in 1781, encouraged by no less than the Austrian emperor Joseph II in order to emphasise the importance of this form of German music theatre as opposed to Italian opera. It was a great success during Mozart's lifetime and has until today lost none of its magic. In 1976, the Deutsche Oper Berlin presented a new stage direction, after Gustav Rudolf Sellner's had been played there for many years, by the renowned Gunther Rennert. Besides well known soloists such as Horst Laubenthal and Zdzislawa Donat, and the actor Hans Peter Hallwachs as Selim, the star of the evening was undoubtedly the multi-talented Finnish bass Martti Talvela as Osmin. The premiere in December 1976 was recorded live and broadcast on ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen).
