The Magic Flute, a dramatic opera by Mozart is not only the oldest opera that even today is as popular as it was more than three centuries back at the time of its debut in 1791. The Opera is originally based on a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. Once you hold your seats and curtain lifts up, the Magic Flute takes you to a new world of fantasy where a series of supernatural events happen and you wonder how creative Mozart was when he composed this critically acclaimed Opera. In order to get these answers we have to go into the past of the Magical Fluteís legendary creator. According to the history, Mozart had extraordinary childhood inclination towards music that made his father to instruct him when he showed immense interest in his sisterís harpsichord lessons. At the very early age of his childhood he started composing short stories and a few years later the new young boy got skills in violin playing. Over the time he transformed into a matured stories composer and finally composed the biggest story of his life, The Magic Flute, in the last year of his life in 1791 that set the standards for the future opera composers not only in German but also internationally.
The Magic Flute is assumed to be aimed towards two types of audiences; the Viennese members of the Schikaneder Theater and Freemasons members who had both Mozart and Schikaneder on its membership list.
