The opera in two acts "The Enchanted Flute" had its opening in Wien, at Freihaustheater, a popular theatre, in 1791. Emanuel Schikaneder's libretto was inspired by the story "Lulu" of Liebeskind, published in the collection of oriental stories Dschinnistan in 1786. The opera is considered to be the best creation of the singspiel genre, a comical opera of German origin which instead of recitative (singing dialogue) uses the spoken dialogue. "The Enchanted Flute" is one of the most appreciated and performed operas of the world. The first assembly was directed and conducted by the composer himself and had a reverberating success. The author of the libretto was interpreting the role of Papageno. In 1792, a year since the absolute premiere, but also since Mozart's death, 100 representations were already being celebrated.
