Music for the soul

The music accentuates the drama. Mozart used a variety of musical styles to depict his characters. Folkloric melodies represent Papagena and Papageno while intense Italianate coloratura symbolises the Queen of the Night. The Magic Flute is a Singspiel including spoken dialogue amongst the musical works.
