Description

Measures: 13" diameter

Stunnning! Bjørn Wiinblad depicts Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's final scene in the opera - The Magic Flute. The two act opera is called a Singspiel - because it includes both singing and spoken dialogue. It's first showing was on 30 September 1791 at Theater auf der Wieden in Vienna.

The story in brief goes - after saving Prince Tamino from death - The Queen of the Night asks him to rescue her daughter Pamina - from Sarastro - a high priest. But in attempting to rescue her - Prince Tamino comes to embrace Sarastro's idealic and good community and seeks to become a member along with Pamina. Through out the course of the opera they both endure rigorous initiations into the community and ultimately the Queen and her court are defeated.

The final scene of the opera - scene 10: The Temple of the Sun - is depicted by Wiinblad on this plate showing Sarastro (the central figure) announcing the sun's triumph over the night. Everyone praises the courage of Tamino and Pamina - (seen on the right) lives happily ever after. The end of a very brief summary of the story.

The back of the plate reads in German:

"Die Zauberflöte
(The Magic Flute)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Erste Aufführung
(First Showing)

Wein, 30 September 1791
(Vienna, 30 September 1791)

Zweita Aht-Letzte Szene
(second act - last scene)

Sarastro:

Die Strahlen der Sonne
(The suns rays)

Vertreiben die Nacht"
(Drive out the night)

The plate is in perfect condition - with no chips - cracks or crazing. It is beautifully decorated with lots of colors and gold paint. It is signed by the artist on the front and back and has the "Rosenthal Germany" signature as well.
