Mozart's The Magic Flute was first performed in 1791. It was the embodiment of many of the principle concerns of the Enlightenment, most specifically the triumphing of rationality over ignorance, light over dark. In 1998 William Kentridge was commissioned by the Théâ tre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels to direct a contemporary production of it, which premiered in 2005.
