Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) is a co-production between Copenhagen Opera Festival and The Royal Danish Theatre and was created in collaboration with Komische Oper Berlin, Directors Barrie Kosky and Susanne Andrade, as well as the London-based performance company '1927'.
This incredible staging of Die Zauberflöte (the Magic Flute) has dazzled a broad audience since it opened at the Komische Oper in Berlin. Thanks to the unique collaboration between Copenhagen Opera Festival and the Royal Danish Opera, it can finally be experienced in Copenhagen.
After ten years abroad, world-famous Danish-born Stephen Milling, who was named Artist of the Year in 2020 by the P2 radio station, returns to the Royal Danish Theatre as Sarastro. This vivacious, spectacular and entertaining opera will enchant both devoted Mozart fans and anyone wishing to commence their journey into the magical world of opera.
Festival Director, Amy Lane, elaborates:
“Barrie Kosky and Susanne Andrade's vibrant production brings razor-sharp wit, a dazzling visual world and ingeniously crafted characters to Mozart's exquisite score. Copenhagen Opera Festival is thrilled to be in collaboration with the Royal Danish Opera in presenting this joyous production."
Mozart’s most popular opera is set in the ‘expressionistic’ silent-movie aesthetic of the roaring Twenties. This surreal universe also features hand-crafted video animation: Nosferatu meets Monty Python animation and Viennese classical opera. Festival Director for Copenhagen Opera Festival, describes her special love for Die Zauberflöte:
"At the age of 15, I was fortunate enough to perform the role of the 3rd Boy in Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden and from that moment onwards, my love of Opera and of this particular Opera, was sealed forever.”
Barry Kosky’s version of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) has enthralled audiences worldwide and can now finally be enjoyed in Copenhagen at the Royal Danish Opera in the coming 20/21 season .
