Christmas – Mozart the Magic Flute – in motion Ι

The Athens State Orchestra thanks the Greek National Opera for its contribution

The timeless appeal of Mozart's Magic Flute has a lot to do, of course, with the universally acknowledged perfection and expressiveness of his music, but it's also because Emanuel Schikaneder's libretto expresses the ever-topical humanist ideals of the European Enlightenment and of Freemasonry in an elegant and vividly symbolic way. Under the baton of the dynamic Katia Molfesi, a cast of fine Greek lyric actors recreate Mozart's operatic swansong in a semi-staged version, adding a beautifully spiritual, fairy tale tone to this year's Christmas celebrations.
