Mozart takes the ingredients for a fairy tale – a prince, his unwilling sidekick, a quest to rescue a beautiful princess – and transforms them into something far more profound as a young couple undergo a succession of trials.

Enigmatic and sublime, full of mystery and joy, this most bewitching of operas is an unforgettable journey from darkness to light, full of peril, magic, and the most enchanting music in the world.
