'The Magic Flute' with silent-film aesthetics

This opera by Mozart will be at Gran Teatre del Liceu from 18 to 28 July

Mozart’s The Magic Flute - Die Zauberflöte in German – has been performed on many occasions at Barcelona’s Liceu opera house since its premiere there on 15 January 1925. But the version scheduled to run from 18 to 28 July is probably going to be the most original one of them all. A creation of the Komische Oper Berlin, and conducted by Henrik Nánási, this version is characterised by a staging that aims to transport the spectator back to the days of the silent films of the 1920s. The critics that have already seen this production performed in other cities have described it as “magical”, “exciting”, “brilliant” and “beautiful”.

The Magic Flute was first premiered in Vienna on 30 September 1790 with a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder and was conducted by Mozart himself, just a few months before his death. Since then, its captivating melodies and plot have made it one of the world’s most popular operas.
