The Magic Flute for children

Salzburg Festival


Philippe Spiegel (Papageno), Valda Wilson (Pamina) © Silvia LelliAlexander Krampe knows how children’s ears listen. His successful children’s version of The Cunning Little Vixen is now joined by The Magic Flute at the Salzburg Festival.

While adults are repeatedly enthralled by the diversity of the singspiel, children are particularly fascinated by the fairy-tale elements of the work.

Krampe has shortened the Magic Flute to approx. 70 minutes and prepared a suitable arrangement for children aged 5 and above.
