Flauto magico. Il suono della pace is part of the 27th edition of Opera Domani, created and promoted internationally by AsLiCo in co-production with Opéra Grand Avignon, Opéra de Rouen and Bregenzer Festspiele. It is a participatory show which blends opera and theater together; it is inspired by Mozart’s masterpiece, Il Flauto Magico, and directed by Caroline Leboutte. On the podium, Alfredo Salvatore Stillo will conduct a group of young singers who won the last editions of the famous AsLiCo Competition. The original story based on Mozart’s opera will be revisited in a contemporary note and set in a new world. Here, the conflicting relationship between Sarastro and the Queen of the Night will be represented as an actual war in which Tamino and Pamina – two teenagers who are finding their place in the world – will often be called to take sides. For decades now, the main aim of the Opera Domani project is to involve and engage school-aged audiences with opera.

The program includes training sessions for teachers and preparatory activities in class in anticipation of the ‘opera experience’, such as listening to some arias from the opera, learning the choruses as well as the choreography and rehearsing it (even in LIS, Italian Sign Language), studying the plot and the characters, exploring the main themes and elements of the story, constructing the objects that children will bring to the theater. All these activities are differentiated according to age group and designed to be shared with family members. The teacher training, which takes place during the school year, is also accredited by the Ministry of Education (under Directive 170/2016).
