Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s celebrated opera is open to a number of different interpretations. It can be seen as a fabulous magic play, or as a mystical work of symbolism, as a perpetual confrontation between Good and Evil, or as a humanistic message. First performed in 1791 at the Freihaustheater auf der Wieden in Vienna, the work is one of the
most frequently played operas in the international repertoire, continually fascinating audiences anew due to its dualism of apparent simplicity and depth of musical expression. The Magic Flute has been performed at the Wiener Staatsoper more than a thousand times since its opening in 1869, and can therefore look back on a rich artistic tradition.
