"The Magic Flute is like a mirror: gazing into it, we see ourselves and find whatever it is we are looking for." (János Leibner)
The combination of Mozart's marvellous music and Schikaneder's coming-of-age storyline has something to tell us at every stage of life. No matter if you are discovering or rediscovering the work as a young lover, a parent, or with the wisdom of old age, this blend of the ethereal and riveting entertainment is always thrilling to watch. Miklós Szinetár's production is suffused with the opera's rich world of symbolism, with the sun always rising at the end.
