Mozart's virtuoso opera Die Entfürung aus dem Serail was directed by Nigel Warrington, who,together with American set designer Edward Pierce and Danish costume designer Ellen Pierce, created a sumptious and sometimes surprising production of one of Mozart's most popular operas. Again critics and audiences were unanimous in their praise for an Aarhus Sommeropera production, which led to yet another Reumert nomination for best opera.

"Aarhus Sommeropera togther with Det Nordjyske Operakompagniet have created an enormous hit with Mozart's "Die Entfürung aus dem Serail". Five splendid singers work miricales with the incredibly demanding music, and are totally convincing with their enormous skill and charm. In addition, the music is performed beautifully, under David Riddell's flexible and elegant direction." (Børsen)

"Turkish delight !" (Aarhus Stiftstidende)

"The fantastic staging is content with fusioning the opera's comic and lyric-dramatic elements into a greater - enormously entertaining - unity." (BT *****)

"Agnete Munk Rasmussen is impressive and delightful in Konstance's long arias. Sparkling, precise, and supple, with a prima donna's glowing timbre." (Politiken)
