"Schikaneder – the turbulent love story behind the Magic Flute" is a romantic musical comedy about one of the most glittering theater couples of the 18th century - Emanuel and Eleonore Schikaneder. Their initially young, carefree love develops into a mature partnership with highs and lows, combined with jealousy, separation and rapprochement. The two of them - as they did in real life! - hugely influenced the world of theater in Vienna. Without them, one of the greatest works of operatic literature – Mozart's Magic Flute – would never have come about.
