“Since I was 16 or so Mozart has been my saviour, and the Magic Flute is my favourite of all his perfect operas. It has everything I wish my own work had a scrap of; beauty of shape and design, a comic, low-down vaudeville vitality blended with dark serious truth-telling, depth of soul, and a generous, unjudgmental view of humankind”
Maurice Sendak
