Performance history

It premiered in Vienna on September 30, 1791. The premiere was at the suburban Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden[1]. Schikaneder himself played Papageno, while the role of the Queen was sung by Mozart's sister-in-law Josepha Hofer. The opera garnered only a lukewarm reception at the time of its opening but slowly gained popularity, thanks to Schikaneder's extensive publicizing, and celebrated its 100th performance in November 1792. Unfortunately, Mozart did not have the pleasure of witnessing this milestone, as he had died on December 5, 1791, barely two months after the opera's premiere. Today, Die Zauberflöte is one of the most beloved works in the operatic repertoire, and is presently the 10th most frequently performed opera in North America, according to Opera America.

Background

The opera is often noted for its prominent Masonic elements. Both Schikaneder and Mozart were Masons and lodge brothers, though the Freemasons were at the time regarded by the public at large as a dangerous and subversive organization. The opera is also heavily influenced by Enlightenment philosophy, and can be regarded as an allegory espousing enlightened absolutism. The Queen of the Night represents irrational-diabolic obscurantism, whereas her antagonist Sarastro symbolises the reasonable sovereign who rules with paternalistic wisdom and enlightened insight. The Masonic Square and Compasses. ... The Age of Enlightenment refers to the 18th century in European philosophy, and is often thought of as part of a larger period which includes the Age of Reason. ... enlightened desportism is the act when a prist lies in order to become better in the eyes of the churchEnlightened absolutism (also known as benevolent or enlightened despotism) is a form of despotism in which rulers were influenced by the Enlightenment, a historical period. ... Obscurantism in its current usage can imply one of two separate concepts, sometimes distinguished by capitalization: // The older sense of the term Obscurantism refers to a class of philosophies that favor limits on the extension and dissemination of scientific knowledge, believing it to be the enemy of faith. ...


Mozart evidently wrote keeping in mind the skills of the singers intended for the premiere, which included both virtuosi and ordinary comic actors, asked to sing for the occasion. Thus, the vocal lines for Monostatos are not difficult, are often stated first in the strings so the singer can find his pitch, and are frequently doubled as he sings. In contrast, Mozart's sister-in-law Josepha Hofer, who premiered the role of the Queen of the Night, evidently needed no such help: this role is famous for its difficulty. In ensembles, Mozart skillfully combined voices of different ability levels.


A particularly demanding aria is "Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" ("The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart"), often referred to as the "Queen of the Night" aria. It reaches a high F6 (see Scientific pitch notation), rare in opera. At the low end, the part of Sarastro includes a conspicuous F in a couple of locations. Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen (Hells vengeance boils in my heart) is the second aria of the Queen of the Night (Die Königin der Nacht) character in Mozarts opera, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte). ... This article or section may be confusing for some readers, and should be edited to be clearer or more simplified. ...


While the female roles in the opera are assigned to different voice types, Mozart referred to all his female singers as "sopranos", apart from some cases where the Third Lady is classified as a "contralto". However, the casting of the roles relies on the actual pitch range of the part.

Synopsis

Overview: Sarastro, the wise priest of Isis and Osiris, has taken Pamina to the temple for the humane purpose of releasing her from the influence of her mother, the Queen of the Night.

Act I

Tamino, a handsome prince (often said to be Egyptian) who is lost in a distant land, is pursued by a serpent. He faints from fatigue and three ladies, attendants of the queen, in black robes, appear and kill the serpent. They all fall in love with the prince and each plans to be alone with him. Through their arguing, they decide that it is best if they all leave together.


Tamino recovers, and sees before him Papageno, arrayed entirely in the plumage of birds. His entrance aria tells of his job as a birdcatcher and the fact that he is longing for a wife. Tamino approaches Papageno and asks who he is. Papageno jokes with Tamino but says that he brings the birds that he catches to the Queen of the Night's servants, who give him food and drink in return. Tamino thinks that Papageno has saved him from the serpent and Papageno claims that he has strangled the serpent. At this moment, the three ladies appear and punish his lie by paying for his birds with a stone instead of food and water instead of wine, and placing a padlock over his mouth. They tell Tamino that they were responsible for saving him. He deeply appreciates them and they show to the prince a miniature of a young maiden, Pamina, upon which he gazes in ecstasy. (Aria: Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön) An aria (Italian for air; plural: arie or arias in common usage) in music was originally any expressive melody, usually, but not always, performed by a singer. ... Padlock A modern padlock. ...


The Queen of the Night now appears, demanding that Tamino free her daughter, the original of the picture, from the hands of Sarastro, promising that he can marry Pamina in return. (Recitative and aria: O zittre nicht) The ladies give Tamino a magic flute that can change men's hearts, remove the padlock from Papageno and present him with a chime of bells to protect him. Papageno accompanies Tamino, and they set forth, guided by three boys. They escape all danger by the use of the magic instruments. (Quintet: Hm hm hm hm) The flute is a musical instrument of the woodwind family. ...


Change of scene (this scene forms Act II when the opera is divided into three acts): A room in Sarastro's palace.


Pamina is dragged in by Sarastro's servant Monostatos, a moor, who is persecuting her. Papageno arrives and announces to her that her mother has sent Tamino to her aid. Monostatos is terrified by Papageno's strange appearance and takes to flight. (Trio: Du feines Täubchen, nun herein!) Pamina and Papageno both talk of their desires, which turn out to be love. (Duet: Bei Männern) Look up moor, Moor in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Change of scene: Grove and entrance to the temples.


The three boys lead in the prince. As Tamino reaches the temple, he is denied entrance at the Gates of Nature and Reason, but at the Gate of Wisdom, a priest appears and reveals to him the noble character of Sarastro. Tamino then uses the magic flute to try and find Pamina and Papageno, and in doing so, the fierce animals around him dance. Papageno appears with Pamina and are about to escape, but are prevented by Monostatos. So Papageno uses his magic bells to send Monostatos and his subjects off dancing. Sarastro and the chorus enter. (Chorus) Pamina falls at his feet and confesses that she was trying to escape because Monostatos had demanded her love. Sarastro receives her kindly and tells her that he will not force her inclinations, but cannot give her freedom. Monostatos then enters with Tamino captive, but when the two lovers are united, Monostatos tries to point the finger on Tamino. Sarastro, however, does not believe Monostatos' dastardly trick. He punishes Monostatos for his insolence and leads Tamino and Papageno into the temple of Ordeal.

Act II

Grove of palms. The council of priests determines that Tamino shall possess Pamina if he succeeds in passing through the ordeal, as they do not wish to return her to her mother, who has already infected the people with superstition. (Aria, Sarastro: "O Isis und Osiris" and chorus) Sarastro parts Pamina and Tamino. (Trio, Sarastro, Pamina, Tamino) The number 13 is often avoided in public buildings, also floors, doors and this Santa Anita Park horse stall. ...


Change of scene: The courtyard of the temple of Ordeal.


Tamino and Papageno are led into the temple. Tamino is cautioned that this is his last chance to turn back, but he states that he will undergo every trial to win his Pamina. Papageno is asked if he will also concede to every trial, but he says that he doesn't really want wisdom or to struggle to get it. The priest tells Papageno that Sarastro may have a woman for him if he undergoes the trials, and that she is called Papagena. Papageno says that he wouldn't mind a look at her to be sure, but the priest says that he must keep silent. Papageno finally agrees.


The first test is that Tamino and Papageno shall remain silent under the temptation of women. (Duet, Speaker and Priest) The three ladies appear, and tempt them to speak. (Quintet, Papageno, Tamino, Three Ladies) Tamino and Papageno remain firm, though Tamino must constantly tell Papageno,"Still!"


Papageno confronts one of the priests and asks why he must undergo tests if Sarastro already has a woman that wants to be his wife. The priest says that it is the only way.


Change of scene: A garden. Pamina asleep.


Monostatos approaches and gazes upon her with rapture. (Aria, Monostatos: "Alles fühlt der Liebe Freuden") When the Queen of the Night appears and gives Pamina a dagger with which to kill Sarastro (Aria, Queen of the Night: "Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen"), Monostatos retires and listens. He tries to force Pamina's love by using the secret, but is prevented by Sarastro, who allays Pamina's alarm. (Aria, Sarastro: "In diesen heil'gen Hallen") Bold text This article is about the weapon. ... Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen (Hells vengeance boils in my heart) is the second aria of the Queen of the Night (Die Königin der Nacht) character in Mozarts opera, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte). ...

Change of scene: A hall in the temple of Ordeal.


Tamino and Papageno must again suffer the test of silence. Papageno can no longer hold his tongue, but Tamino remains firm, even when Pamina speaks to him. Since Tamino refuses to answer, Pamina believes he loves her no longer. (Aria, Pamina: "Ach, ich fühl's, es ist verschwunden")


Change of scene (sometimes used as Act III): The pyramids.


(Chorus) Papageno also desires to have his little wife. (Aria, Papageno: "Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen") At the first ordeal, an old woman had appeared to him and declared herself his bride. She now again appears and changes herself into the young and pretty Papagena. However, the priests send her away with thunder and lightning. She vanishes, frightened, and Papageno is miserable. For other uses, see Wife (disambiguation). ...


Change of scene: An open country.


The three boys see Pamina attempting to commit suicide because she believes Tamino to be faithless. They prevent her from doing so, and take her to see him.


Change of scene: Rocks with water and a cavern of fire.


Men in armor lead in Tamino, and give him advice and reassurance that Pamina lives. Sarastro appears and sends Pamina in. Pamina arrives and is overcome with joy to find Tamino, who is now allowed to speak to her. Both pass unscathed through the final ordeal of fire and water with the help of the magic flute, which Pamina tells him was carved by her father from an ancient oak tree. Papageno wishes to take his life because he can't stop thinking about Papagena, but acts merrily when the boys advise him to use his magic bells to summon the image of Papagena. (Duet, Papageno, Papagena: "Papageno! Papagena!") The traitorous Monostatos appears with the Queen of the Night and her ladies to destroy the temple, but they are magically cast out into eternal night. (Finale: "Nur stille, stille") The scene now changes to the entrance of the chief temple, where Sarastro bids the young lovers welcome and unites them.

Adaptations

Films

  • In Trollflöjten, Ingmar Bergman's acclaimed 1975 film version, the opera is sung in Swedish although the sound was not actually recorded in synch with the photography. Bergman makes a major change in the plot: Sarastro is Pamina's father, and has a good claim, morally and legally, to her custody. In addition, the Three Boys introduce themselves, instead of being introduced by the Queen's Three Ladies; thus, in Bergman's version it is obvious from the first that the Three Boys are not in the Queen's service.

The Magic Flute - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (930 words)
Countless dozens of Ph.D theses must be written about Mozart's The Magic Flute and yet it is so lively with elements of fantasy and free-flying imagination that it is often the first opera to which children are taken.
It is lightened by such elements as locked lips, charmed animals, and, of course, a magic flute.
Haydn had introduced Mozart to Freemasonry, and the opera is full of the ideas (the autonomy of the individual, self-determination, appalling sexism), the ideals (power, wisdom, beauty), and the symbols (aprons, hammers, compasses, a pyramid with an all-seeing eye) of the Masons.
