What is the mystery of this opera by Mozart and why does it attract audiences of different age categories for more than two centuries? The Magic Flute is one of the most performed opera works. Many treatises, reflections and books have been written about it.


Tamino, on his journey to Pamina, also searches for truth and orientation in the complex world of symbols interfacing fairy tale and mystery. By combining music and text, Mozart and the author of libretto, Emanuel Schikaneder,  created a conflicting world of good and evil, noble and folk, joy and sorrow,  spectacular theatre and mystery. Hope and euphoria from the ideas of freedom and equality, represented by the Great French Revolution and Enlightenment, dominated at the time of the first premiere of The Magic Flute in 1971. Today, 231 years later, there is rather disillusionment and a sense of threat to our fragile world.


A common desire of man then and now is the search for an ideal social order and desire for love, freedom and understanding that brings Mozart´s last opera work closer to both, an adult and a younger spectator.
