    Stage version with string quartet and mime company, 
    based on The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart  

    In 2019, the Zaïde Quartet had the first option on an anonymous arrangement of Mozart’s last opera which was discovered by chance in an antique shop. “When you listen to this version, what is striking and apparent is that the music is still just as articulate even without the libretto; not one scrap of eloquence is lost from these arias when they are sung by string instruments,” claim the performers. To stimulate the eyes and the imagination, the company directed by Wolfram von Bodecker and Alexander Neander, both disciples of mime artist Marcel Marceau, will delight young and old alike without uttering a syllable. We guarantee you will be enchanted.
