About the Opera:
Composed bij Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Lyrics by Emanuel Schikaneder
First première at the Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna on 130 September 1791


A malicious serpent. An evil sorcerer who is holding a beautiful princess captive. A dark queen with manipulative motives. And three testing trials of his courage and virtue. What else must Prince Tamino overcome in his quest for love, light and wisdom?
The Magic Flute is one of the greatest and most popular operas ever written. This is a wonderfully theatrical and imaginative staging from Complicite artistic director Simon McBurney where live sound effects and breathtaking animations help bring this captivating tale to life.
