Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Parázsfuvolácska - The Magic Flute for children

27. Schlendrian season ticket


Fairy-tale singspiel with intermission for pretzels, in Hungarian, with Hungarian and English surtitles
Although Mozart's opera is a fairy tale for grown-ups, its wondrous elements - the trial of Tamino and Pamina, the comic antics of Papageno, and not least of all, the enchanting music of Mozart - also make it a perfect introduction to the world of opera for children. It's just a matter of serving up the work to them in an appropriate fashion. The distinguished poet János Laczkfi, a father himself, has helped us re-conceive and rework The Magic Flute expressly for the enjoyment of little ones. With added attractions galore, youngsters of all ages are sure to be enchanted!
The fantastic opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Emanuel Schikaneder reconceived for younger audiences!
In this adaptation, children get to thrill to the gripping story of Prince Tamino and Papageno as it unfolds in Sarastro's Circus. Clowns, acrobats, aerial gymnasts, knife-throwers, fire-swallowers, magicians and Mozart's immortal melodies... Like in a fairy tale! As passions of love and hatred burn in the cavalcade of circus performers on the stage, so too will the viewers in the auditorium find their hearts aglow with the magic...
The popularity of The Magic Flute has never flagged in more than 220 years. This version created expressly for the primary school age group will be presented on the stage of the Erkel Theatre, featuring brand-new verse from János Lackfi and the directing of Attila Toronykőy.
