The Magic Flute: Komische Oper Berlin
About the Event
The Komische Oper Berlin presents the most frequently performed German opera in a highly‐inventive interpretation: Barrie Kosky's production of The Magic Flute in combination with the British theatre group “1927”.
The new Magic Flute at the Komische Oper has created an absolute thrill – and not just in Berlin! In Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and at the Deutsche Opera on the Rhine, this production has been greeted with euphoric enthusiasm by both audiences and the press. 'Barrie Kosky has transformed the Magic Flute into a stunning live‐action cartoon, so bewitching as to silence every criticism,' (Los Angeles Times).
The British theater group 1927 and Barrie Kosky have pulled off 'a deliciously absurd blend of silent film and animation,' (Berliner Morgenpost). 'You are amazed by the perfection, you laugh in appreciation of the virtuoso design behind each of these scenes… Breath‐taking!' (TAZ)
In German language, with German, English, French, and Turkish subtitles.
