Heir to the Enlightenment, Mozart dreamed of composing a work that would please both scholars and valets: like this flute capable of charming the animals of the forest. From the electrifying overture to the curtain call, his music pursues its goal: to make the Earth like Heaven and humans equal to the gods. A goal that it finally achieves: during the final chorus, the composer succeeds in creating a musical utopia. The Magic Flute then crosses the night and, 230 years later, continues to enlighten our world.
