The History of the Magic Flute
Die Zauberflöte, was first performed at the Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna, September 30, 1791. This was Mozart’s last ever opera. The international cast including Peter Gijsbertsen (La Traviata 2017), Gemma Summerfield and also Julia Sitkovestsky will perform Scottish Opera’s version in English at the Festival Theatre.
The Magic Flute- A fantastical tale
Here lies a story of a handsome prince and a damsel in distress where Mozart takes us into the depths of a fantastical world. Themes encompass a range of emotions taking on love, morality, comedy and also fantasy.
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.
