Die Entführung aus dem Serail
Oper von Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Frederic Mann Auditorium Tel Aviv 2007
Musikalische Leitung: Zubin Mehta
Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
Bühne/Kostüme: Jürgen Kirner
Licht: Judy Kupferman
Never has there been anything like this. The Mann Auditorium has never seen such amazing stage-direction and such terrific stage. The young German director, Aron Stiehl, shot a missile of imagination, of magic and of surprises. It was insane; a rocket of humour, Mozart at his best, amazing!
A small confession: you can probably imagine how hard it is for me to write such a good review.
So take hold of yourselves and run to the Abduction!
Yediot Aharonot, 12.7.2007
This production provided many moments of sheer fun. The production was full of surprises and kept the audience amused throughout the evening. Performed in modern costume, the production was superb and strikingly different from more traditional stagings. The scene… generated immediate enthusiasm among other viewers, who couldn’t help but pick up on parallels with current news stories about former President Moshe Katsav. Thanks to staging by director Aron Stiehl, he offers a number of moments of joy.
Jerusalem Post, 12.7.2007
…these are only some of the surprises and magic tricks in store for the audience. Lots of credit therefore should go to the stage director Aron Stiehl, for his ability to present a complete and spectacular musical theatre in minimal means.
Run and experience it!

I shall say that everything we saw and heard was spectacular for both the eye and ear.
