This irresistible libretto pairs Davide Pizzigoni’s engaging images with J.D.McClatchy’s witty new translation plus a music CD of rare 1937 recording of Arturo Toscanini conducting the Vienna Philharmonic. Originally commissioned by the Viennese music-hall impresario Emanuel Schikaneder, Mozart’s ‘Magic Flute’ has triumphed over these humble beginnings to become one of the most widely performed and best-loved operas in the international repertory. Over the centuries, Mozart’s inspired whimsy and profoundly serious symbolism have been interpreted by artists as varied as Marc Chagall and David Hockney. Now, with elegant verve, Davide Pizzigoni translates Mozart’s celebrated musical motifs into such compelling visual counterparts as quirky faces, vividly exotic beasts, extravagant shoes, dream-tinged architecture, and unexpected flowers. The inventive design of the book stages the opera on the page, giving each reader a front-row seat at a dazzlingly original performance. The new translation of the Schikaneder/Mozart libretto by poet and librettist J.D.McClatchy takes an equally fresh and amusing approach. As he says in his lighthearted but informative introduction, this opera ‘enchants both the novice and the sophisticated, the child and the connoisseur’- and so will this captivating book.
