Step into the fantasy world of Die Zauberflöte - where fairy tale ingredients blend with Mozart’s finest melodies:

  • Love story of Prince Tamino and Princess Pamina and the tests they have to go through
  • High-drama tension between The Queen of the Night and Sarastro, the High Priest
  • The hair-raising coloratura dementia – The Queen of the Night's murderous, and murderously difficult 'Die Holle Rache'
  • The outrageously silly exchanges between the lovelorn bird catcher Papageno and Papagena – hear them sing 'Pa-pa-pa' (more like gasping) for about 48 times

Mozart wrote more than 20 operas throughout his life. Die Zauberflöte, the Singspiel (an 18th century German musical comedy with spoken dialogue) written just before his death, is probably his most popular operatic work. It is this masterpiece which perhaps turned a page in arts history, the first work to be made accessible not just to the aristocrats, but also to the masses.

Whether or not you are an opera fan, Die Zauberflöte is one opera you should not miss!
