Die Zauberflöte


The Magic Flute

Opera in two acts K. 620 (1791) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart..................
Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder

New Staging

Director Lydia Steier entrusts the plot to a narrator, with a grandfather reading Die Zauberflöte as a bedtime story to his three grandsons. But reading aloud and listening also involves bringing one’s own past and world of experience into the story one is telling or listening to — and vice versa. In this way the exuberant fantasy of the Zauberflöte bursts into a strict, upper-class household where reverie has little space, taking the three young boys straight into the heart of the action.

Sung in German with German and English surtitles

Duration: approx. 3 hours 15 minutes
