With its colourful costumes. With its delightful way of portraying characters for children. With that atmosphere of fun and mischief of all the productions by Joan Font and the Comediants. This is even more so in La pequeña flauta mágica (The Little Magic Flute). If there were any opera that was already light-hearted and playful, it would be Mozart’s The Magic Flute, that wonderful story of the adventures of Prince Tamino and the bird-.catcher Papageno on their trip across very distant lands to rescue the princess Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, who has been kidnapped by the evil Sarastro.
However, as occurs in comedies, life is not what it seems. Is Sarastro really the most villainous of villains ever? Will love triumph over all for the prince and princess? By synthesizing the original opera by Mozart to its stellar moments, Joan Font and the Comediants, with their intelligence and long experience at adapting famous musical works for boys and girls, have created a classic children’s opera which is as educational as it is captivating.
Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder based on the short story Lulu, from the collection of oriental tales Dschinnistan of Wieland (1786).
