Every year, just before the Christmas holidays, Bozar and the Belgian National Orchestra put on a heart-warming family show. This year, the French collective Les Clés de l’écoute, specialised in youth performances, will be presenting the compelling story of a bird gradually winning its freedom, based on the music of Mozart. A mime artist guides young and old through the performance, while video projections provide an exciting visual show!

Young singers perform arias telling the story of the bird catcher Papageno, his beloved Papagena and the terrifying Queen of the Night – all characters from Mozart’s most famous opera The Magic Flute. The programme also includes sections from two other masterpieces: Così fan tutte and Don Giovanni. Expect completely new story lines that turn everything you know about these operas upside down!
