The Magic Flute is one of Mozart’s most popular operas. Written in 1791, it is a “singspiel“ (sing-play) which weaves spoken dialogue around arias, duets, and ensembles. It tells a lighthearted story of good and evil. Fanciful and endearing characters encounter those with less well-intentioned desires spun out through beautiful melodies along with an occasional show-stopping fireworks of coloratura. And as we all hope, good triumphs over evil in the end.
Family friendly: Our abridged concert-version is in English. It is narrated and semi-staged with costumes and orchestra (Running time: 1 hour, 30 minutes).
