The Magic Flute (German: Die Zauberflöte), KV. 620, is aa opera in two acts by Wolgang Amadeus Mozart to a German libretto by Emanuel Schickaneder. The work is in the form of a Singspiel – a popular form during the time it was written that included both singing and spoken dialogue. The work premiered on 30 September 1791 at Schikaneder’s theatre, the Freihaus-theater auf der Wieden in Vienna, just two months before the composer’s premature death.

The allegorical plot was influenced by Schikaneder and Mozart’s interest in Freemasonry and concerns the initiation of Prince Tamino. Enlisted by the Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter Pamina from the high priest Sarastro, Tamino comes to admire the high ideals of the latter and he and Pamina both join Sarastro’s community, while the Queen and her allies are vanquished.

The vision of the opera created by Anna Długołęcka retains its simply fabulous perspective – the artist created both uniquely beautiful costumes and stage images using the latest 3D technology.

In cooperation with the musical director of the show, prof. Dariusz Mikulski, an excellent interpreter of the music of W.A. Mozart created a timeless work of global scope.

The artists of the Wrocław Opera fulfilled the artistic assumptions of the show’s creators with their creativity and performance level.
