People of the Past - Mozart

This week is all about an opera Mozart write called 'The Magic Flute'. An opera is like a play in which the characters sing all their lines. Opera singers do not use microphones - their voices are trained, and can fill a whole theatre with sound without needing one! All operas have solo singers and an orchestra, and a lot of operas have a chorus, too.

 

The Magic Flute (or Die Zauberflöte in German) was composed especially for a theatre in Vienna with which Mozart had a close relationship. The opera premiered on 30 September 1791 (just two months before Mozart’s premature death), with the composer conducting the orchestra. It was an immediate hit with audiences and having taken Vienna by storm, The Magic Flute’s popularity soon spread throughout Europe. Today, it remains the third most frequently performed opera worldwide.

 

Begin this week by listening to The Magic Flute Overture - an overture is a piece of music played at the beginning of a play, opera or ballet in order to set the mood.

 

Ask an adult to help you listen on YouTube at the following web address:
