From the organizer:

Mozart’s opera “Die Zauberflote” (The magic Flute) is one of HBSO’s most popular productions, and it is being revived for a single performance on March 31 in the Saigon Opera House. The opera will be sung in German, with the dialogue spoken in Vietnamese.

Mozart wrote many operas in Italian, but this one was in German because it was designed to be produced in the Vienna theater owned by his friend Emanuel Schikaneder. The language spoken by the Viennese population was German.

Mozart and Schikaneder were both followers of Masonry, a new pseudo-religion modeled on the principles of liberty, equality and brotherhood that had formed the basis of the French Revolution. So the new opera combined comedy and popular dramatic events with solemn rituals that were intended to introduce Masonry to the Viennese people.

“Die Zauberflote” is the third most popular opera worldwide, after Verdi’s La Traviata and Bizet’s Carmen. A full house is expected for this revival.
