The Magic Flute
Opera in two acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart / A Sternenflammenden Oper Wien project

The Magic Flute – a wonder-filled tale of adventure? Or an internal monologue? Or an individual’s personal fears, presented in the guise of a fairy-tale? Alternative interpretations of the work’s meaning are many and varied. And its individual characters are equally diverse; their search for answers is the driving force within Mozart’s mysterious two-act opera. Like a young character in this opera, young people in our society try to become part of the world they live in and escape loneliness …

This is an extremely complex work. Its raw material – its themes – are equally well-suited to the worlds of cinema and literature. Its relevance is timeless, and it is understood afresh by each new generation. And so it is that, at just 22 years of age, the co-founders of Sternflammenden Oper Wien, Ralph Volpert (musical direction) and Leila Schütz (production), have taken on the challenge of creating a new, enthusiastic ensemble. Their Magic Flute is about gaining freedom, recognition – and love!
