He wrote a couple of songs, invited some friends to his studio and recorded a full length album. Influenced by Spacemen 3, Vladimir Martinov, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Mercury Rev, and The Velvet Underground, Lars and the Magic Mountain sounds droney, space, symphonic, hypnotic and lush with songs about devotion, honesty and loyalty.

Internationaal Theater Amsterdam

 What’s more, it’s probably the most famous opera in the world – everyone knows the Queen of the Night’s ariaeven if they’ve never seen or heard the whole pieceIt was in 1791 that Mozart wrote his opera about Prince Tamino, who sets out to rescue Princess Pamina with the aid of a mysterious magic flute. 

Internationaal Theater Amsterdam

Silbersee and De Toneelmakerij are now making a new version for anyone aged seven or above. This Magic Flute is set against the backdrop of an intergalactic battle between the Night and the Sun. The young astronaut Tamino crashes his rocket in a forgotten corner of the Milky Way. There he meets the star-catcher Papageno, and together they set off on an adventure to rescue the princess.

Furthermore, their mission is a success, and the astronaut falls head over heels in love with the self-assured princess. And she falls in love with him. And sure enough –because that’s what happens in fairy tales – they live happily ever after. Unless… maybe it’s not that simple.

Music theatre company Silbersee and De Toneelmakerij are joining forces to produce a totally contemporary version of Mozart’s masterpiece, in which classical music, rap, dance and theatre blend to create magical musical theatre for all the family.
