Open air, unplugged: Johannes Wildner and “The Magic Flute” at the Oper Burg Gars – from July 13th

“The Magic Flute” is, according to artistic director and conductor Johannes Wildner, “the starting shot for the European Enlightenment society that spans the past 200 years.” Whether Enlightenment and the associated ideals are still applicable to the deep crisis that Europe currently finds itself in – that is the question that director Kurt-Josef Schildknecht asks in his staging just as Wildner and the rising stars in the fresh, international, ensemble ask it in their interpretation of Mozart’s music.
Details regarding cast, performance dates, shuttles from Vienna, and more are available at the Oper Burg Gars web site. By the way, the mediaeval Burg Gars is not only the perfect stage for both this opera and the question posed by the production. The castle’s excellent acoustics also make the Oper Burg Gars festival one of the very few that need not and will not use electronic amplification.
