Brook and his company, the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord / C.I.C.T., bring to FIBA a version of The Magic Flute by Mozart created by Brook with composer Franck Krawczyk and collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne. Brook makes clear that this is not The Magic Flute but A Magic Flute. Like in his previous opera versions, such as Bizet’s Carmen, Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande, and Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Brook dismantles the work from its generic artifice to create, with a minimal set, an intimate piece in which the audience is invited to access new textures of Mozart’s piece. Seven singers, two actors, and a pianist perform this condensed version, in a style that critics have interpreted as a reduction that actually amplifies the meaning of Mozart’s opera. Drawing on his particular style, which includes techniques from Asian and African theater traditions, Brook builds a magic staging in which ritual and play are organically intertwined and where the elaborated architecture of operatic performance acquires at times the fresh quality of improvisation. This show has received the Molière Award 2011 for Best Musical Theater Play. We are honored for this opportunity to see Brook’s work as an opera director, and to enjoy a new staging of The Magic Flute with the features that positioned this director as one of the most important artists of our time.

Fundación Teatro a Mil (FITAM) choose this production to be part of FIBA in Chile programme.
