There will be two intervals

Energy and good humour meet musical exoticism in Mozart's earliest operatic success – the storybook fantasy The Abduction from the Seraglio.

It's a work born of the 18th-century fascination with the Orient and there's no resisting the jangling pulse of percussion that is the opera's heartbeat.

Glyndebourne Festival Opera returns for its annual visit to the Proms under Music Director Robin Ticciati, with an international cast led by British soprano Sally Matthews and Lithuanian tenor Edgaras Montvidas.
