The content of the work of art has several “stories in the story” and in its essence it is fantastic, fairy, representing the conflict between good and evil. There are two worlds, the underground world of darkness, represented by the evil Queen of the Night and the world of light, justice and kindness, represented by Sarasto. Two worlds fight over the Prince Tamino and after numerous temptations the World of the Sun prevails, so he leaves the underground world, deserving the hand of Pamina. Simple-minded, naïve world of “little” people is presented in the character of Tamino’s constant fellow traveler, a bird-catcher Papageno. The evil Queen of the Night wants to get hold of the magic flute which has the magic power, wishing to conquer the world by it. In many people’s opinions, the magic flute is the symbol of music itself and music art as well. However, the World of evil and darkness decays, the light prevails and the power of the magic flute is used to everybody’s joy and happiness.
Our setting is entrusted to the Youth Club, in which about 30 attendants work very hard, preparing the work of art with a pianist Vladimir Gligoric, director Ana Radivojevic Zdravkovic and the conductor Stanko Jovanovic. The Opera is abridged to duration of an hour. The main arias and ensembles are sung. Especially characteristic are the arias of the Queen of the Night, sung by coloratura soprano and also famous are the arias of Tamino, Pamina and Papageno as well. The excellence and freshness of this music have enchanted the listeners all over the world, so “The Magic Flute” is one of the most often performed operas in the whole opera repertoire and in all world opera houses.
We invite you to introduce children the opera art through comic libretto where good wins evil in an unusual love story, to do something noble for the youngest generations, because we are certain to provide them an unforgettable experience that will enhance their personalities!
