Description

What begins like a fairy-tale turns into a whimsical fantasy halfway between magic farce and Masonic mysticism: The Magic Flute links a love story with the great questions of Enlightenment, juxtaposes bird-catcher charm with queenly vengeance, and bewitches the listeners with music that mixes cheerful melodies, lovers' arias, show stopping colouraturas and mysterious chorales. Mozart's opera premiered in 1791 and is one of the most often performed operas in the world. The 2013/14 production on the Bregenz Festival lake stage impresses the audience with a fantastic setting framed by three dog-dragons, each of them more than twenty metres in height.
