Program Notes

The first performance of The Magic Flute took place in 1791. The hero of the story, Tamino, is guided by the magic flute through all sorts of dangers toward the light. On his way, he meets Pamina and falls in love with her. Mozart wrote this overture two days before the opera’s premier.
