The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte, 1791), created by
the composer at the end of his life, not only tops the
list of Mozart's most performed operatic pieces, but
also enriches the standard repertoire of every opera
theatre in the world. This particular opera is the only
work, written by the inspired composer in a very
short time for the Viennese suburban
Freihaustheater auf der Wieden, where he
collaborated with the then renowned librettist and
actor, as well as the theatre's producer and director,
Emanuel Schikaneder. It is also the only Mozart's
creations, based on the tradition of the Viennese
Volkstheater ('People's Theatre'), magical opera
classics as well as the so-called mechanical comedies.
The Magic Flute is one of the composer's
distinctively different and also quite atypical operas
in terms of its story, characters and stage effects and
at the same time a logical continuation of his creative
opus, at least regarding the way he tackles his
themes, mostly inspired by the age of
Enlightenment. Its story is based on the
dramatization of the contents of an individual quest
for emotional fulfillment. Through its fairy tale
themed narrative this work of art unveils the
situation in the society during the period of
Enlightenment, which brought far-reaching social changes.
Moreover, the story, filled with imaginative

scenes, fantasy elements and magical talismans
always addresses generationally diverse audiences.


This production is directed by Jaša Koceli,
a successful Slovenian theatre director who already
participated in the creation and staging of the
Slovenian operatic novelty Julka and Janez on our
theatre's Stage -3. Musical direction of this
production is in the hands of Maestro Jaroslav
