Synopsis: Filled with ritual and symbolism, Mozart’s final masterpiece is a playful but profound look at man’s search for love and his struggle to attain wisdom and virtue. From the virtuosic arias of the Queen of the Night to the folksong-like melodies of the bird catcher Papageno, the full range of Mozart’s miraculous talent is on display in this magical fairy-tale opera. That The Magic Flute is a barely veiled Masonic allegory cannot be doubted. It acts, in fact, as a kind of introduction to the secret society. Its story celebrates the main themes of masonry: good vs. evil, enlightenment vs. ignorance, and the virtues of knowledge, justice, wisdom and truth. *Synopsis from San Francisco Opera
