Mozart: The Abduction from the Seraglio

When the Austrian Emperor, fired by the spirit of nationalism, wanted to offer his people art in their own language, Mozart upgraded the jolly Singspiel to the status of an opera. The nobles sing music to fit their grand emotions while the peculiar Oriental bass Osmin huffs and puffs and gets so drunk that he loses the tune.

Sung in German.
