Description

'Die Zauberflöte has wonderfully strange things in it,' says the South African-born artist and director William Kentridge, whose captivating and thought-provoking production of Mozart's opera made its mark in five countries before reaching La Scala, Milan. Animated monochrome imagery, such as an acrobatic rhinoceros and a spectacular starscape, creates the illusion - for both cast and audience - of being caught inside the black box of an antique camera, while the play of brightness and darkness explores the possibilities and limitations of the Enlightenment.
