Intergenerational success opera: »Die Zauberflöte / The Magic Flute«

The first premiere of the 2020/21 season is a very special one: Mozart’s probably most famous opera »Die Zauberflöte / The Magic Flute« can be experienced in a new production in the Semperoper from November 1. In his staging, Josef E. Köpplinger unfolds the dimensions between folk and world theatre in powerful video installations and a symbolically intense coming-of-age story. The libretto describes Tamino’s way as a path of many trials, of revenge, and of sweetest love with dancing animals and wondrous boys, until Tamino and Pagageno finally reach their destination happily.
