Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' with Newlin, Eriksmoen, Poulitsi and Novaro from Beaune
Beaune International Baroque and Romantic Opera Festival. Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' is an opera in two acts to a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. The work is in the form of a Singspiel, a popular form that included both singing and spoken dialogue. Tamino, a handsome prince lost in a distant land, is pursued by a serpent and asks the gods to save him. He faints, and three ladies, attendants of the Queen of the Night, appear and kill the serpent. They find the unconscious prince extremely attractive, and each of them tries to convince the other two to leave. After arguing, they reluctantly decide to leave together. Sung in English.
