Die Zauberflöte is one of Mozart’s most famous works and one of the most beloved of the entire operatic repertoire. Generations of spectators have been fascinated by the melodies and adventures of Papageno, the Queen of the Night, Tamino, and Pamina, the ordeals faced by the young lovers, and the work’s inexhaustible allegorical depth. The director Romeo Castellucci has deliberately stepped back from the narrative dimension of the opera in order to explore its raw emotion and its philosophical heart. For his part, the conductor Antonello Manacorda brings Mozart’s immortal music to life with the help of an outstanding cast that includes Sabine Devieilhe, one of today’s finest interpreters of the Queen of the Night.

Synopsis

The hero, Tamino, sets out to rescue Pamina, the daughter of the Queen of the Night, with whom he is in love and who has been abducted by Sarastro. Sarastro presides over a society into which Tamino is invited: he must undergo a number of trials, at the end of which he will be granted Pamina’s hand. Throughout this adventure, Tamino is accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno, who also meets his own future partner, Papagena.
Isn’t Sarastro, however, in the promises he makes to the young people, manipulative? Is he not, moreover, the beneficiary of a cult and of slaves, in contradiction with his egalitarian principles? Should we not, accordingly, believe in the sincerity of the Queen of the Night and of the outburst in which she expresses her wounded maternal feelings?
