The Magic Flute

W. A. Mozart

iko_freese_berlin14This is a performance like none you have ever seen, opera or theatre. In this celebrated production created at the Komische Opera in Berlin, The Magic Flute is recast as a fantastic tale from the golden era of silent cinema. Combining animation with live singers, it brings a wholly new approach to the fantasy world of The Magic Flute. The familiary story of Tamino seeking Pamina and Papageno pining for Papagena and of the struggle between darkness and light is all there, as is Mozart’s wonderful music.

Duration 2 h 45 min, 1 intermission (intermission 25 min)

Performed in Finnish, surtitles in Finnish, Swedish and English
