This version of Mozart’s masterpiece directed by Barrie Kosky and the 1927 company has already toured around the world. The French premiere will be held at Salle Favart.

Singspiel in two acts to a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder premiered In Vienna at the Theater auf der Wieden in 1791.

Lost in a foreign land, Prince Tamino accepts the mission entrusted to him by the Queen of the Night, unaware of the world he is going to enter. His guide, naive Papageno, and Pamina, whom he must set free, are as lost as he is. Anxiety and trust in the magic of the flute will give in to the lights of reason through trials. 
In 1791 did Mozart suspect that The Magic Flute would be his final score? At age thirty-five, he was exhausted but his will and inspiration were intact. He wore out his last strength in this most cherished plan of a great German and popular opus celebrating the ideals of the Enlightenment. The Viennese success, which illuminated the end of his life, became universal by the nineteenth century. 
The production by Barrie Kosky and the 1927 company has toured the whole world since its premiere in 2012 at the Komische Oper Berlin. The scenography incorporates the singers into a video device wherein the different locations, elements, supernatural phenomena as well as the words and insinuations unfold by way of an animated film, with the colors and charm of 1927 cinema.

Production in German with supertitles.
