Mozart’s last dramatic work is a play with songs, which the composer dedicated to the audience of the Theater an der Wien, where it premiered in 1791.
The production at the Radost Theatre appeals to the widest range of spectators – “from ten to one hundred” – and after a successful premiere where it was positively evaluated and enthusiastically received by critics and audiences alike – it belongs among the family performances which are looked forward to with great interest.
Compared to the original work, the libretto combines many various themes, it is greatly simplified, and its fairytale character is accentuated (the feud between Sarastro – the Sun King and the Queen of the Night or the love theme between Prince Pamina and Princess Tamino) and, of course, we maintain not only the dramatic but also the comic elements primarily through the bird-catcher Papageno.
Mozart’s work of musical genius is from the last period of his life – days of distress and illness.
Yet it is full of brightness, life and optimism, and the talented singers and musicians at Radost greatly look forward to the challenge of its vocal rendition.
Length of performance 1 hour 30 min.
