"Die Zauberflöte" ("The Magic Flute") is an opera in 2 acts by Mozart.     


Its premiere took place in 1791. In one year, "Die Zauberflöte" was performed in Austria 100 times. The role of Papageno was performed by the famous singer of the time – Schikaneder, and that of the Queen of the Night – by Josepha Hofer – a relative of Mozart. In November 1792, Schikaneder announced the 100th staging of the opera. Mozart himself did not attend this important event, as he died only 2 months after the premiere - on 5 December 1792. Today, the opera is one of the most frequently performed works in the opera houses around the world. The most famous parts of the opera are the duet of Papageno and Papagena and the aria of the Queen of the Night for coloratura soprano.

W.A. Mozart's last opera, “Die Zauberflöte”, is a masterpiece that holds the opera stages.

It was first presented in Vienna on 30 September 1791, under the direction of the composer, and passed with great success. Goethe liked this opera very much, calling it a "utopian and strange tale, in which human virtues are preached: love, diligence, moral perfection."

At the Sofia Opera, "Die Zauberflöte" has been staged many times, but especially for the new children's educational program an adapted version for children has been created by the stage director Yulia Krasteva, the conductor Boris Spasov and the artist Hristiana Mihaleva. The action is focused and dynamic, the plot is recreated with a lot of humor and mood, the main characters are presented with their most famous arias and ensembles.

The clash of good and evil forces, friendship and love are in the basis of the spectacle, from which flows a lot of joy, light and optimism.
