Zauberflöte Requiem

Musico-theatrical production by Holland Opera around Die Zauberflöte [The Magic Flute] and the Requiem of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791)

Mozart in the Werkspoorkathedraal, Utrecht, Netherlands

Mozart wrote both the Zauberflöte [The Magic Flute] and the Requiem during the last months of his brief life. Our story will be a combination of two worlds: the chilly, black-and-white world of the Queen of the Night and the colourful world Tamino grows up in. It is an opera about fear of and reconciliation with death, the desire for unconditional love and an ode to life.
