The depth of Mozart’s genius is evidenced by his last opera, The Magic Flute. A child-like fantasy is paired with the master’s most stunningly beautiful music. From the spectacular fireworks of the Queen of the Night, to Pamina’s anguished lament, and Papageno and Papagena’s comic antics, Mozart’s profound understanding of the human condition is given voice.
