Mozart’s master comedy opera is richly reimagined in a boundary-busting production by internationally-acclaimed opera company Komische Oper Berlin and co-directed by Barrie Kosky and Suzanne Andrade from British theatre group 1927, with animation by Paul Barritt.
Blending projected animation with stunning live performance in an ingenious kaleidoscope of 1920s silent movies and Tim Burton-esque dark humour, this visual fantasia is made for film buffs and art lovers, as well as fans of opera. New Zealanders have the chance to see this most popular of operas (performed in German with English subtitles), featuring a large international cast and crew with a 75-strong glorious-sounding Berlin chorus and soloists travelling to Aotearoa and accompanied by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, exclusively at Auckland Arts Festival 2019.
