This libretto-based study exposes the existence of an overriding purpose rooted in late-eighteenth-century eschatological thought. It also offers a new perspective on the opera's origins. Dr. Thomson examines the Alberti libretto of The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) as a literary form and reveals unexamined literary, historical and religious sources, leading to a new, more coherent interpretation of the opera and to hypotheses about the identity of the libretto's author and Mozart's death.
