Mozart shows a creative power of such magnitude that one can virtually say that he tossed out of himself one great masterpiece after another.
Although I have heard Mozart's The Magic Flute opera, I haven't seen a performance of it before. It looks like I am missing out. Watch this video on the Lyric Opera of Chicago site for a description of The Magic Flute and you'll see what I mean. And look at these posters/covers:
