Dear Music lovers, this will be our second Opera from MET NY Live Transmission from Protected content

The opera, “The Magic Flute,” is the last opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The world premiere of this opera which was actually conducted by Mozart on the 30th of September in Protected content . Papagano was played by Emanuel Schikaneder, the principal of the theater, who requested Mozart to compose this opera. Mozart died on the 5th of December that year. He instructed those closest to him to play “The Magic Flute” for him when he is on his deathbed. I assume that Mozart really loved this opera. This opera became so successful, it was performed Protected content that year.

The Magic Flute is an opera in two acts:

Act 1
In ancient times, in Egypt, this is an imaginary story. Prince Tamino is attacked by a big serpent. But, three ladies who are the servants of the Queen of the Night save him. Three ladies show him a portrait of the queen’s daughter, Pamina, and Tamino falls in love with her eventhough he has not even met her. The Queen of the Night promises her daughter to him, if he can rescue Pamina who is enslaved by the evil Sarastro. Tamino decides to rescue her, and is given a magic flute by the three lady servants. There is a man, Papageno who is a bird catcher. Incidentlly, he follows Tamino, and is also given magic bells by the ladies.
By the power of the magic flute and bells, Tamino finally gets to meet Pamina. They fall in love with each other immediately. In fact, Sarastro is not an evil man, but an high priest. He has protected Pamina from her mother who is filled with ambition to dominate the world.

Act 2
Sarastro imposes three tests on Tamino to get his lover, Pamina. The first test is “Silence.” When Tamino falls silent, Pamina who knows nothing feels sorrow, but they can endure this test. The scond test is “Fire,” and the third test is “Water.” They can overcome these tests through the power of the magic flute.
In addition, Papageno is also tested to get his unseen lover. Papageno is not able to endure the tests. He can’t pass his tests. However, he can meet his lover, Papagen“a” through the power of the magic bells. Papageno falls in love with Papagena.
On the other hand, Pamina’s mother, the Queen of the Night is furious. She tries to break into the temple of Sarastro. But, she is hit by a thunderbolt, and goes to hell.
In the end, Sarastro blesses Tamino and Pamina for overcoming their tests.
