Tropical Hummingbird Pin

Inspired by nature, this shimmering hummingbird pin is reflective of the many colorful, tropical animals seen in the Met’s splendid production of Mozart’s much-loved opera, The Magic Flute.

Artisans combine illustrations with needle-craft to create unique collections.

Handpicked materials merge together in matte and shine, polished and rough to create mesmerizing patterns and organic lifelike dimension.

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.
