  • Abstract English Abstract
    Magic Flute is Mozart’s last work of opera, and also the peak of Singspiel. This opera integrates the composing styles of German, French, and Italian operas and demonstrates the roundedness and refinement characteristic of Mozart’s later works. The original libretto of Magic Flute, written by Schikaneder, has a lot to share with the ideology of Freemasonry. Therefore, besides the entertaining effects common in Singspiel , this opera is ethically instructive.
       Papageno is the comic character in Magic Flute and the soul of it, too. He functions to carry on the plot and takes on the task of amusing the audience. His performance, including the musical essence, the singing skills, and the action, holds the key to the success of the opera.
       This research is divided into seven sections:
    1. Mozart’s life and his creation of operas
    2. The creation process of Magic Flute
    3. Introduction to the roles in Magic Flute
    4. The characteristics of the role of Papageno
    5. Discussion about the singing of Papageno
    6. Some suggestions about the action of Papageno
    7. Conclusion
