W.A. Mozart: Zaide

Opera and youth project at the Theater Baden-Baden

Description Program Artists

A little gem that makes a big impression: many a listener has fallen in love with Mozart’s Zaide. For his first Seraglio opera, the composer called upon the most tender sounds. The moving “Ruhe sanft, mein holdes Leben” is one of two “Bildnis” arias. A famous third one – from Die Zauberflöte – is more elaborate and polished, yet the music of Zaide touches our heart perhaps even more. As a German-language Singspiel, Zaide was too avant-garde for its time. During this Festival we will be presenting it with young musicians and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker. As part of their school projects, students will be attending the performances, which are suitable for listeners of all ages.
