A German Opera in two acts (1791)

recommended for 6 years and older

In German language. Without surtitles due to the stage design.


Papageno wants Papagena - Tamino his Pamina. But the pathway to love is not a simple one! Everyone has to undergo difficult trials. They even have to decide against murder and suicide, and do without food and drink and sometimes even without speech and song. The things that help them survive danger are a flute and a set of magic bells. The most world-renowned opera in a classically beautiful production, the legacy of stage director August Everding. The snake still breathes "real" fire, the Queen of the Night is still really a "star-flaming" monarch. The stage portrait (by Jürgen Rose) is wondrous fair. The magic of this opera really works here.
