Description

What better place than the opéra royal de Versailles to present "The Magic Flute ", Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's (1756-1791) last masterpiece created in 1791 at the Theater auf der Wieden, in a suburb of Vienna?

The two-act opera, based on a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder** (1751-1812), in an original contemporary staging by Cécile Roussat and Julien Lubek**, is presented here entirely in French with French and English surtitles in order to be accessible to as many people as possible, from the most experienced music lovers to the simply curious. The texts have been adapted to bring a modern touch but are never anachronistic. The musical and lyrical power of this masterpiece created in the 18th century, which is at once a marvellous tale, a popular comedy, a philosophical fable, a religious mystery and a Masonic opera, remains intact.

This "tonic and festive version of The Magic Flute ", between laughter, emotion and gravity, is a formidable playground for all the artists who give free rein to their talent and imagination. The dancers and acrobats, the costumes and decorations… all the elements are gathered to make you spend an excellent family evening for the festive season.
