The Magic Flute

The Magic Flute
Emanuele Luzzati

Hey Kiddos! While fumbling around on youtube, which I usually do on lazy Sunday mornings before The Boog wakes up, I decided to listen to some Classical music. I cannot resist the Queen of the Night's "Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen" (in english:The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart) which appears in what was to be Mozart’s last opera, The Magic Flute. To my surprise I came across a very interesting animation from an illustrator I was not familiar with.

Animated by Giulio Gianini and illustrated by Emanuele Luzzati, The Magic Flute comes to life. Luzzati was an Italian painter, production designer, illustrator, film director and animator. He was nominated for Academy Awards for two of his short films, La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) (1965) and Pulcinella (1973), both animated by Giulio Gianini. Luzzati later published his designs from The Magic Flute; Images can be seen via NY animator/director Michael Sporn which he has split up into two very detailed posts.

The animated version is below.

Have a nice weekend all!
