The original text, derived from the Dies irae sequence, is as follows:
Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem. (×2)
Pious Lord Jesus,
Give them rest.
Pie Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem sempiternam.   
Pious Lord Jesus,
Give them everlasting rest.
Pie is the vocative of the word pius ("pious", "dutiful to one's parent or God").[3] "Jesu" (Iesu in Latin) is the vocative of Jesus/Iesus.[4]Requiem is the accusative of requies ("rest"), sometimes mistranslated as "peace", although that would be pacem, as in Dona nobis pacem ("Give us peace").

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem[edit]

Andrew Lloyd Webber, in his Requiem, combined the text of the Pie Jesu with that of the version of the Agnus Dei formerly appointed to be used at Requiem Masses:
Pie Jesu, (×4)
Qui tollis peccata mundi,            
Dona eis requiem. (×2)
Pious Jesus,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Give them rest.
Agnus Dei, (×4)
Qui tollis peccata mundi,
Dona eis requiem, (×2)
Sempiternam (×2)
Lamb of God,
Who takes away the sins of the world,
Give them rest,

The Hit Single

Many operas contain hit tunes that take on a life of their own. In Mozart's Abduction it's Konstanze defying her brutal captor in the flamboyant aria Martern aller Arten.

"Too many notes. Just cut a few and it will be perfect." You may remember those "cutting" words which the tin-eared Emperor presented to Mozart in the movie Amadeus. Reportedly, Joseph II actually did offer that opinion in response to Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio, the opera he commissioned from the 26-year-old composer in 1782.

What Mozart put on the stage for the Emperor was indeed something new, as the Emperor conceded. The poet Goethe said that Abduction "knocked everything else sideways."

Anything Turkish was in style at the time, and true to the trend, Mozart sets Abduction in a Turkish harem and flavors the music with extra percussion, evoking the military Janissary bands of Turkey (especially in the rollicking overture).

But Abduction was far more than just trendy and Turkish. The depth of Mozart's music was constantly increasing during this period. In letters to his father he wrote about trying to capture the very heartbeats of emotion in his characters.

Abduction is the crazy story of two men rescuing their lovers from a Pasha's harem, but the way Mozart blends high comedy with touching tragedy signals his new maturity as an opera composer.

The Act II quartet, sung by the two principal couples, surely impressed those first audiences, and it still impresses today. It's almost a miniature opera within itself, beginning and ending with the joy of the lovers' reconciliation, yet with a melancholic middle section in which the music palpably expresses the personal doubts swirling within the characters' outward happiness.

Like Mozart's final opera, The Magic Flute, The Abduction from the Seraglio is written in the German Singspiel style, featuring dialogue that is not sung but spoken. Various amounts of dialogue are used (even altered or updated) depending on the production.

This production of Mozart's Abduction comes from the 2006 Salzburg Festival, the annual arts and music spectacle set in the composer's hometown of Salzburg, Austria. It's performed in the newly renovated hall that now bears the name "Haus fur Mozart."
