“Magic Flute” Diamondpointe

Diamondpointes Ballet Shoes are unique, upcycled works of art inspired either by celebrated ballet characters in famous ballets or by the romantic city of Paris where the concert form of ballet first began.  Diamondpointes have been stripped, cleaned, dyed, painted, glued, sewn, bedazzled, lined and glittered to bring out their beauty once again.

This Diamondpointe was created to capture the color and exciting beauty of the Met’s popular holiday production of The Magic Flute, envisioned by artist Julie Taymor.

Diamondpointes make exquisite gifts for ballet lovers or collectors of unique art. They come in a white organza bag with a designed, titled and numbered tag, and each includes a stand for display.

History

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte)

Mozart’s final opera (written before La Clemenza di Tito but first performed later) premiered in Vienna in September 1791, just weeks before the composer’s death, with Mozart conducting the orchestra from the fortepiano. A timeless fairy tale, it was a major success from the beginning and never lost its place as one of the most popular works in the repertoire. Julie Taymor’s beloved Met production opened in 2004. Its abridged English-language version, which returns in December 2013 as the company’s annual holiday presentation for families, inaugurated the Met’s Live in HD series of performance transmissions to movie theaters around the world in 2006.
