Drawing of Tamino in The Magic Flute

                   The Magic Flute is a beautiful story of the journey from dark to light, loneliness to love, and naivety to enlightenment. This magnificent opera, composed by Mozart in the year 1791, is flushed with allegories, Masonic themes, enlightenment philosophy, and inspiring storylines about taking control of your own fate and overcoming life’s obstacles.

                In the next few weeks we will do our best to explore and explain these various extremely complex aspects of The Magic Flute, in the hopes that it will both expand your knowledge of the historical importance it holds, as well as the timeless lessons that it can teach all of us.
