The Magic Flute Unveiled: Esoteric Symbolism in Mozart's Masonic Opera: An Interpretation of the Libretto and the Music by Jacques Chailley

Wonderfully detailed interpretation, from start to finish, of the Magic Flute and its symbolism. History of the libretto, Mozart's relationships with those involved, and historical and Masonic context. Books is basically divided into two sections: an interpretation of the libretto and an interpretation of the music.
