Overview

This production of a special edition of Mozart’s great fairy-tale opera ‘The Magic Flute’ is an abridged version specially prepared for the purpose of educating the secondary school students in enhancing their knowledge and appreciation of western opera.  

Opera is a refined and highly developed art form with an enduring tradition emphasising beautiful music and powerful dramatic expression. Mozart is one of the greatest musical geniuses in history particularly famous for his operatic compositions. ‘The Magic Flute’ is the last opera he created shortly before his premature death at the age of 35. It has been one of the most popular and successful works of its kind ever since its first performance in Vienna in 1791 and has been widely praised for its inspired music and imaginative theatrical effects, built around a fantastic story full of colourful events and idealistic meanings.  

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on 27 January 1756 in Salzburg, in Austria. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood, he composed three little pieces from the age of five and performed before European royalty.

In 1756, Emanuel Schikaneder, a German impresario (an srts manaher), wrote the libretto of The Magic Flute and requested Mozart to produce selling out and staged over a hundred performances during its few months of production, and this is the last opera from Mozart.
