Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's mytical tale

Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: Die ZauberfloteBuy Tickets

Production by Julie Taymor

Die Zauberflote or The Magic Flute comes back to the Metropolitan Opera starring Golda Schultze and Charles Castronovo as the star-crossed lovers Parmina and Tamino. Mozart's last work staged before his death, Die Zauberflote received its premiere in Vienna in 1791. Staged in full German, this stirring tale of supernatural trials and adventure stands as one of the composer's most popular works, and continues to mesmerize audiences to this day.

This Met production boasts production by the great, Tony-winning Julie Taymor, who has also helmed some of Broadway's greatest modern shows, including The Lion King. She's the perfect artist to capture the opera's grandeur and sweeping fairytale narrative without losing sight of its characters. This 2018 staging is conducted by James Levine.
