About the Event

Celebrate Mozart's operatic depiction of pain and comfort, day triumphing over night, and the path of righteousness: The Paris Opera presents Mozart's final opera, 'The Magic Flute' in a production by Robert Carsen.

At once a magical tale, a popular comedy, a philosophical fable, a religious mystery, and a masonic opera, Die Zauberflöte is an opera that speaks to audiences at many levels in many ways.

'The Magic Flute' is a singspiel, or singing play, in two acts by Mozart. The premiere took place on 30 September 1791 at the Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna, two months before the composer died. 'The Magic Flute' initially seems an amusing fairytale, in which good triumphs over evil. Upon closer inspection, the opera is revealed to be a deeply philosophical work, influenced by the democratic ideals of the Enlightenment.

Performed in German, with French and English surtitles.
