Mozart’s beloved comedic opera is richly reimagined by director Barrie Kosky and British theater group 1927, resulting in a spectacular kaleidoscope of 1920s silent films, Weimar cabaret, and the dark whimsy of fairy tales. A stellar cast from Komische Oper Berlin interacts with vividly rendered animated projections in a live fantasia that pays audaciously delightful homage to the power of love, the birth of the movies, and the pioneering genius of Mozart.
