Irish Chamber Orchestra: The Magic Flute
In 1790, Mozart had fallen on hard times. Fortunately, his friend, singer and poet Emanuel Schikaneder had recently written a new play about magic – which was all the rage in Vienna. With Shikaneder’s libretto, Mozart composed The Magic Flute, which was to become one of the most popular and most performed operas in history. Be prepared to be spirited away into a fairy-tale realm of magic, love and humour – on the wings of some of Mozart’s most sublime music!
