Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio is a comedic opera with a twist ending and virtuosic music.  In anticipation of Dayton Opera's presentation,  stage director Kathleen Clawson,  tenor Robert Norman, soprano Chelsea Friedlander, and Dayton Opera chorus master Jeffrey Powell joined WYSO's Niki Dakota in the WYSO studios for musical preview and behind the scenes conversation. 

Dayton Opera will present The Abduction from the Seraglio on February 17th and 19th at the Schuster Center.  More details available at: http://www.daytonperformingarts.org

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
