Join Mike Cascia as he lectures on Mozart's Die Zauberflöte. A great way to experience the wonders of opera without leaving Enfield. Sponsored by the Friends of the Enfield Library.
Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte is a sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism—was written for a theater located just outside Vienna with the clear intention of appealing to audiences from all walks of life. The story is told in a Singspiel (“song-play”) format characterized by separate musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, an excellent structure for navigating the diverse moods, ranging from solemn to lighthearted, of the story and score.
