The son of a Salzburg court musician, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) showed prodigious ability from his earliest years. The young Mozart spent much of his childhood touring Europe with his father, performing before nobility. He went on to compose in all musical genres of his day and excelled in every one. Mozart's operas in particular represent the peak of his genius and remain unsurpassed in terms of beauty, vocal challenge and dramatic insight. Mozart died only a few weeks after the premiere of Die Zauberflöte, his last opera.

An old friend of Mozart, Emanuel Schikaneder (1751–1812), wrote the opera’s libretto, staged the work, and sang the role of Papageno at the premiere. The libretto draws on several literary sources, and is further strongly influenced by the ideas of Freemasonry, by earlier productions of Schikaneder’s theater company and by the tradition of Viennese popular theatre.
