Mozart’s last great operatic work, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), was first performed barely a month before the composer’s death in 1791.
It is a wonderful combination of outstanding, grand operatic arias and tuneful lighter songs, all linked by spoken dialogue and set against a background in which the power of light and enlightenment overcomes the darkness of night and superstition.
The story follows Prince Tamino and his quest to rescue his beloved Pamina from the grasp of her mother, the evil Queen of Night, and his return with her to the world of light presided over by Sarastro, the High Priest of Isis and Osiris.
The opera will be sung in English with full orchestra.
