I stay corrected. Marc writes: MARC NOTE:  The real issue is style of music.  The Magic Flute is Mozart Italian style Opera at it's best.  The fact that it's in German - can be attributed more to the time in Mozart's life, the fact that its Mozart's last opera, etc.  But the style of music is classic Italian Opera.  Wagner is German Opera.  Get it?  Never saw it from that perspective, but he is right.

It's a bit frustrating, that my culture is therefore associated with the heavy "Weltschmerz" Wagner Opera instead with the, at least in parts, playful Zauberfloete. And what about this rumor that American's don't have culture? :-)
