Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts the full-length German version of Mozart’s magical fable, seen in Julie Taymor’s spectacular production, which captures both the opera’s earthy comedy and its noble mysticism.
DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE—a sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism—was written for a theater located just outside Vienna with the intention of appealing to audiences from all walks of life. The story is told in a song-play format characterized by separate musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, an excellent structure for navigating the diverse moods of the story and score. The story is as universal as any fairy tale.
