Opera…in a Hangar? Die Entführung aus dem Serail – Salzburg Festspiele 2013
Owned by Dietrich Mateschitz (founder of energy drink company Red Bull) Hangar-7 (in Salzburg, Austria), is a not really a hangar but a multifunctional cultural center hosting a collection of historical airplanes, helicopters and racing cars. Plus restaurant and bar.
Last Monday, August 26th, this unconventional space hosted an even more unconventional performance of Mozart´s opera “The Abduction from the Seraglio” (Die Entführung aus dem Serail, K.384).
Singers wander among the audience, providing a unique, intimate experience.
