Belmonte seeks his betrothed, Konstanze, who, with her maid Blonde, is held prisoner by the Pasha. Pedrillo, now forced to serve as the Pasha's gardener, tells him that the Pasha loves Konstanze, but will not force his attentions on her. Belmonte, with Pedrillo's help, plans to abduct Konstanze and Blonde from the Seraglio. Director Hans Neuenfels, who produced his "first Mozart" here in Stuttgart, retains the story's naivety and absurdity. He does this primarily by splitting the characters: Neuefels places an actor at every singer's side who not only takes over his role for the spoken original scripts, but also interacts with his singing double and other characters of the piece.
