Combining animation and live singers makes for a hugely enjoyable and widely acclaimed experience. 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. The precisely timed collaboration of live action and moving images brings an endless variety of fantastic riches to the stage.
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. The story is more captivating than ever, with the spoken dialogue being replaced with animation and text.
