Mozart's Magic Flute in the Semperoper and three concerts in Leipzig.. it doesn't get any more beautiful! Because of (early) reservations, we are already bringing the trip to these music cities to your attention - so you can look forward to all these musical highlights for a long time to come.
Die Zauberflöte is a grand masterly opera with impressive choral work and beautiful arias. Attending this opera in the Semperoper will be a highlight in your life. This also applies to Beethoven's Messa Solemnis in the Oper of Leipzig and to a church and chamber concert at the Bachfest in Leipzig.
