Sept. 8-22: Abduction from the Seraglio
The In Series presents a new twist on Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio. Directed by Tom Mallan, this adaptation by D.C. playwright Bari Biern is set in the 19th century Wild West. Instead of a Turkish harem, the opera unfolds in the saloons and open plains of the American frontier as Belmont, the romantic hero, attempts to rescue his beloved Lillie from her kidnapper, the eccentric “hanging judge” Roy Bean, Jr. The production opens this Sunday and runs through September 22 at CulturalDC’s Source Theatre.

Music: “Wide Open Western Skies” by Wild West Gang
