„Fairy-tales, and thus operas based on fairy-tales are full of symbolic images from our subconscious that are directly connected to and affecting our human psyche. These images are motifs of the universal subconscious, and their diversity allows for free association, and calls for interpretation.
The Magic Flute is special in the way it transforms a fairy-tale plot into an opera about initiation. I wish for our opera to help viewers big and small step out of their everyday lives and partake in a unique initiation where their souls can ascend.” – opined Péter Gemza about The Magic Flute.
The director premiered his staging of one of the world’s most well-known Mozart-operas as the opening night of the 2022 Debrecen Open-air Festival. The masterpiece is certain to have old and young hanging at the edges of their seats, and this year, it awaits dedicated and soon-to-be dedicated opera-goers at the Újszeged Stage of Szeged Open-air Theatre.
