We see Mozart coming towards us with a wicked smile, ready to play tricks on us, to catch us unawares. We hold out our arms to him, with the same impudence that hides a deep love and respect for the essential qualities he reveals.
This will be a Magic Flute far from the expected ways. The vast panoply of scenic effects, the heavy and solemn symbolism are all put aside.
In their place, the audiences will find an ever-young Mozart surrounded by an equally young and talented cast of singers and musicians ready, like the composer, to improvise, transpose, to explore new colours, to juggle with forms.
We propose a light, effervescent Flute, where an intimacy with the performers will allow the tenderness and the depth of the score to appear.
