Children’s Opera — The Magic Flute

Stadtcasino Basel
Tuesday, 27 December

“The Magic Flute” is the most famous, the most popular, and the most frequently performed German opera. The fairy tale plot and the wonderful, catchy melodies enchant young and old alike. The opera offers children an incredible variety of stimuli for their imagination—there is the witty, unforgettable Papageno; the wonderful love story between Prince Tamino and his beloved Pamina; the magnificent, wise world of Sarastro's sun temple; and the evil, dangerous Queen of the Night with her unbelievable coloratura drama. There are also enchanted musical instruments, menacing snakes, and dancing animals in a world where good triumphs over evil.
Now a beautiful special version of this opera classic for children ages 4 and up is coming to the stage. The shimmering voices of the Prague Kammeroper (Chamber Opera) enchant the audience with the most famous arias and ensembles of this masterpiece. The enchanting story is told in German by the likeable actress Melinda Thompson. As "High Priestess Isira" she presents the plot in a slightly shortened, clear, understandable way, with wit and charm. The "Magic Flute for Young & Old" with soloists from the Prager Kammeroper is not only an excellent introduction to the world of opera, but also fresh and humorous entertainment, created for big and small children, but by no means childish!
Tickets are CHF 31.00-51.40 for adults and CHF 20.80-36.10 for kids under age 18.
