Back in 1790, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the prolific composer of his times, had fallen on hard times and struggling to make ends meet. Constantly short of money and recognition, caring for his wife who is often ill and living a life filled with misfortune was depressing. A chanced reunion with an old friend, Emanuel Schikaneder, who was looking for a new play to thrill the Viennese gave rise to the Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).

Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) is an opera in two acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. The work was premiered on 30 September 1791 at Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna, just two months before the composer's premature death.

The Magic Flute tells the story of Tamino, a prince who must undergo a series of tests, accompanied by his sidekick Papageno, in order to marry the princess Pamina. Alongside the priest Sarastro, Tamino, Papageno, and Pamina battle Pamina's mother, the evil and mysterious Queen of the Night.
