Opera - The Magic Flute

#1
Has anyone out there seen The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?

If so what do you think of it? Also, do you know of any good websites that give a good description about all the characters?

Cheers

Whilst I don't doubt that Mozart was on some mind-altering substances at the time he wrote it, he cannot be held responsible for that production - you should be questioning the soberness and sanity of the artistic director if it really was as weird as you say. I've seen several productions (amateur and professional) and I've not seen anything like you describe! 8O

smb: glad to have been of help - I hope that you do enjoy it - let us know!

It's called "fiction" tropper :wink: . Mozart composed the music for this opera. He didn't write the story or the libretto.
