Based on Mozart’s famous opera, The Magic Flute tells the story of Allegra, who is lost in a dark forest on her way home from school. The Magic Flute, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera, is an opera where enchantment, magic and symbolism get constantly mixed up. An explosion of senses. It's a dive, or rather an introduction to the dream world and to love with his trials, rituals and the eternal conflicts that arise from it. It’s a world where one finds oneself but also where we learn to see each other.
