The Magic FluteUnknown - 1992
The Magic Flute was Mozart's last great work for the theatre before his death in 1791. Written originally as a comic opera in the Singspiel tradition, it features oriental subjects sprinkled with fantastic elements and magic as well as the inevitable low comic characters. In the hands of Victoria (BC) poet Linda Rogers, the original libretto has been re-cast as a fairy tale for children. This edition is intended for the true opera-buff who has seen The Magic Flute many times, as well as for those children who are about to see it for the first time, or will never see it.
