An enchanted world awaits.
He had only seen her picture, but he was already head-over-heels. Despite his fear of what was to come, he knew he had to find a way to save her. With a loyal friend by his side and a magical flute in hand, he put one foot in front of the other, ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
Mozart’s sublime tale has been masterfully re-imagined by Komische Oper Berlin and the British theater group 1927 in a “surreally enchanting” (LA Weekly) production that has stunned and delighted audiences across the world. The clever marriage of early cinema style, fanciful projections, and nimble stagecraft results in “a deliciously absurd blend of silent film and animation” (Berliner Morgenpost) that keeps you rapt from beginning to end.
