Presentation

Young Prince Tamino learns to his cost that a hero is made, not born. When he is pursued by a giant serpent, it is not his shining armor that saves him after he faints from fright but three attendants of the mysterious Queen of the Night. The Queen promises Tamino her daughter Pamina’s hand in marriage if he rescues her from the clutches of the evil Sarastro. Tamino is given a magic flute to help him in his quest. Accompanied by his sidekick Papageno, who hopes to find love in the arms of a Papagena, Tamino makes his way to Sarastro’s palace. The world he encounters turns out to be more complex than any fairy tale.
Fairy play, symbolic opera and allegory are just some of terms used to describe The Magic Flute, indicative of the story’s multiple layers of meaning open to so many interpretations. For his final operatic work, Mozart allowed himself immense freedom to mix styles and registers to assemble this enchanting mosaic, full of contrast yet supremely coherent. Johanny Bert brings his background in theater and puppetry to this production, creating a mischievous tone around the juxtaposition of convention and prejudice with the complicity of conductor Andreas Spering.
