Description
 
The strangest of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's operas, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote) is on the one hand the beguiling story of lovers in jeopardy, as transparent and enjoyable as any pantomime; on the other, an opaque allegory that has occasioned more interpretative speculation than any opera outside the canon of Richard Wagner.

Ultimately, the esoteric meaning is less important than the overt subject matter, which is conveyed through a consistently entertaining mix of popular tunes, high-art arias, solemn Gluck-like drama and bel canto display.

For this Zurich Opera staging, designed by Philip Prowse, Jonathan Miller has set Mozart's opera in the time of it's creation: 1791, just after the French Revolution and the fall of the Bastille.
