A Journey of Insight

The Magic Flute begins as a classic story of heroism and initiation: a young man falls in love with the portrait of a woman. He is sent on a journey to defeat the villain who stole her and free the woman he desires. The special twist here, however, is that the supposed villain is not really evil (although we don't know whether he is really good either) and the image that was initially conveyed to the prince turns out to be untruth and intrigue. - Or not?

The journey of Tamino and his companion Papageno is not just a search for truth, it ultimately develops into a search for human perfection. Through the encounter with Sarastro's priestly community, who as “initiates” have secret wisdom, the theme of striving for the good and the divine and the will to overcome human badness and stupidity opens up.
