About

In few words:

Mozart’s last opera can be seen as a marvellous tale for children or as an ardent meditation on human existence. A prince from a far-off land on a quest to find a slightly suicidal princess encounters a giant snake and a swaggering bird catcher, the Queen of the Night and a mysterious High Priest imposing strange rites of passage… Drawing inspiration from the words of the composer in a letter to his father, the director Robert Carsen provides an elegant and sober Magic Flute, a dark jewel that conquers Death and makes it “our best friend”, – a source of reassurance and consolation.

Media coverage

  • C’est le point fort de Carsen : la primauté du théâtre, avec ses gestes, ses déplacements et ses surprises, dans un souci de variété qui éveille constamment l’attention.

    Guillaume Tion, Libération.fr, 10 février 2017
  • Une force et une cohérence qui fascinent toujours autant la salle.
