This production of MOZART's masterpiece "Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute)" has been selected as the work to commemorate the appointment of ONO Kazushi as Artistic Director of Opera. This well-known Singspiel is loaded with auditory highlights, including the catching melodies of "Der Vogelfänger bin ich ja" and "Pa- pa- pa-", as well as the Queen of the Night's renowned aria "Der Hölle Rocht kocht in meinem Herzen". Artistic Director ONO has chosen this production by South African visual artist William KENTRIDGE, who has taken the opera world by storm, staging productions at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Salzburg Festival. Blazing new trails in its bold incorporation of imagery, this production had its world premiere at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels in 2005 and has since gained worldwide popularity, with performances at La Scala in Milan and the Aix-en-Provence Festival. Built on his wealth of experience in Europe, the breath-taking stage design fully captures the idea envisaged by ONO of maintaining a sense of modernity while not detracting from the music. With truly international-level Japanese performers joining seasoned conductor Roland BÖER of La Scala fame alongside rising stars such as Andrè SCHUEN, Steve DAVISLIM and Sava VEMIC, this production hails the dawn of a new era.

Production of Aix-en-Provence Festival and Rouen Opera, created at Théâtre de la Monnaie in 2005
