Die Entführung aus dem Serail (German: ) (K. 384; The Abduction from the Seraglio; also known as Il Seraglio) is an opera Singspiel in three acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The German libretto is by Gottlieb Stephanie, based on Christoph Friedrich Bretzner's Belmont und Constanze, oder Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

Beecham only made two studio recordings of a Mozart opera, a Magic Flute form Berlin in the 30s and this Abduction from the Seraglio in stereo from 1956. The latter is the best recording ever put on disc, with excellent singers, including the marvelous Leopold Simoneau as Belmonte and the hilariously villainous Gottlob Frick as Osmin. But the greatest thing about this set is Beecham's vivacious and buoyant approach to the score-pure champagne from first to last.

The circumstances behind The Abduction from the Seraglio show that all the ingredients have been brought together by some nice fairy to produce a masterpiece. There is a happy concordance between the creative fire that takes over the musician and the changes occurring in his life. The work was composed and created between two signature events: Mozart’s break with Archbiship Colloredo and his marriage to Constance Weber, whom he married three weeks after the triumph of The Abduction from the Seraglio – and whose heroine is named Konstanza. That detail tempts us to make biographical connections. Mozart found an opportunity to develop his genius through a suitable commission associated with the reorganization of the old Burgtheater, which had become the national theatre with a section called German Opera or National Singspiel. With the greatest enthusiasm.
