A flute in searh of its childlike soul

Constance tells us that during the last days of his life, in the autumn of 1791, Mozart followed from his bed, watch in hand, each performance of his Zauberflöte by his friend Emanuel Schikaneder’s Theater auf der Wieden, humming its emblematic arias… Could he have offered more beautiful proof of his attachment to this now legendary score? In this opera following on from the very aristocratic (and Italian) “Da Ponte trilogy”, the composer returned to the popular theatre genre that suited him so well, ideally combining childlike enchantment (embodied by the characters of Papageno and Papagena) and spiritual initiation (through the quest of Tamino and Pamina). This emblematic work is brought to the stage by the director of the Opéra de Lausanne, Éric Vigié, who, for this new production, wanted to sand off the successive layers of intellectual varnish that have accumulated over the centuries in the collective imagination, in order to rediscover its original patina of magic and childlike naivety. How could this be done? By shifting the narrative focus to the Three Boys and dressing the whole thing in oriental silks: a guaranteed means of bringing a modern vibe!
