As I was doing my homework one day, I decided it might be nice to have some background music, and, having heard about the magical qualities classical music appears to have on grades and the speed of homework completion from my fellow classmates, I looked up one of the pieces of classical music I was more familiar with; Mozart’s „Die Zauberflöte“. At first, I only listened to the piece here and there, and realized that the music itself was truly incredible. However, as I got more and more into the play and the lyrics of the songs themselves, I started to wonder what on Earth the characters were thinking when they did what they did in the story, for example, killing a dragon that apparently came out of nowhere, or falling randomly in love with a picture. From there, using the historical knowledge I had read of the time period, which I had established to be around the medieval/renaissance time in Europe, I quickly came to realize that the plotline of „Die Zauberflöte“ was wholly and completely ridiculous. Although the music itself is still in my mind one of the most beautiful collections of classical music in the world, I hope you enjoy this comedic rendition of „Die Zauberflöte“.
