INFO

Die Zauberflöte

Mysterious, quirky, fascinating, buoyant and endlessly inspiring, Die Zauberflöte is one of Mozart’s most famous works of music, and one of the most popular pieces in the opera repertoire. The tale focuses on the adventures of the shrewd Prince Tamino and the equally cheerful and vulnerable bird catcher Papageno. Together they set out to rescue Princess Pamina from the clutches of the priest Sarastro. A dangerous quest, full of twists and turns; not everything is as it seems. The youngsters are given musical instruments with magical powers for their protection. The healing power of music helps them to face every ordeal. Their reward? Wisdom and love.

In his dying year of 1791, Mozart dared to combine operative building blocks for Die Zauberflöte into a music-theatrical unit. Tender love songs, fun folk tunes, romantic duets, pseudo-religious music, and last but not least, the swirling arias of the iconic Queen of the Night.

The playful, exciting, but often deeply elusive music will be played by an almost entirely Dutch cast. While Dutch director Jorinde Keesmaat, proves that Mozart is as relevant and contemporary now, as it was when it was first produced in 1791.

Die Zauberflöte will be performed in German with Dutch surtitles.

Premiere: November 8, 2019 at 20:00 Theater at the Vrijthof Maastricht
