Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The Magic Flute

Grand Opera in two acts
The most performed German opera in a startling interpretation. The Magic Flute seems to throw up more questions and mysteries than it provides answers. By the end, all logic and reason fail before the immeasurable fantasy of this magic opera.

Barrie Kosky’s celebrated production, winner of the most important British theatre prize, the Laurence Olivier Award, can now also be experienced at the Komische Oper Berlin with new staging.
Komische Oper Berlin and director Barrie Kosky are nominated for the Opera Award 2014!
"Every performance a Premiere!" This was the credo of the founder of the Komische Oper, Walter Felsenstein. Consequently, we too celebrate the revival of a production just like a premiere, with guest lecturers from renowned experts relating to the theme of the show 45 minutes before the curtain goes up, and in the After Show Lounge following the performance, as a revival party.
It took the 19-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart just six weeks to write his pastoral opera Il re pastore, an enchanting, charming piece which only betrays the youth of the composer in its Arcadian lightness and fresh tone. Candy for the ears!
