The Magic Flute is one of the most famous and most performed German-language operas. The fairytale plot and the wonderful, memorable tunes appeal to young and old alike. This opera offers seemingly endless inspiration for children’s imaginations: there is the witty, unforgettable Papageno, the wonderful love story between Prince Tamino and his beloved Pamina, the magnificent, wise world of Sarastro’s Temple of the Sun, and the evil, dangerous Queen of the Night with her incredible dramatic coloratura. There are also magical musical instruments, menacing snakes and dancing animals, in a world where good prevails over evil.
The Gasteig presents a unique and wonderful version of this classic opera, created for children aged 4 and older. The lustrous voices of the Prague Chamber Opera captivate the audience with the most famous arias and ensembles of this masterpiece, while actor Melinda Thompson narrates the story in the role of »High Priestess Isira«. Presenting the plot in a slightly abridged form, she leads the audience through the story with wit and clarity – an excellent introduction to the world of opera as well as fresh and humorous entertainment for kids of all ages.
