This masterful performance is according to Maurice Béjart’s words “a fairytale which takes us into the pure poetry of childhood or genius; then – and most of all – a precise, rigorous, and inspired ritual.”

Through the alternation of magical or comical scenes, this ballet, which has faithfully staged Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s score, makes music visible and reveals the essence of the movement that lives in its core. Philosophical fable and initiatory tale, The Magic Flute preaches the acceptance of human fallibility, the couple’s triumph over disunity and the victory of Enlightenment over darkness.
