В этом смысле особое значение приобрела "Волшебная флейта", в основе к-рой лежит нем. пьеса. При всей отвлечённости и экзотичности её сказочного сюжета она наиболее близка к нар. характеру, нац. песен-ности и полифонии, формам отечеств, т-ра. В обстановке засилья иностр. оперы "Волшебная флейта" явилась для Австрии и Германии провозвестником нац. иск-ва. Прогрессивные принципы реалистич. оперного творчества М. сыграли огромную роль в развитии муз.-сценич. иск-ва. С о ч.: П и с ь м а и документы.- Mozart. Briefe und Aufzeichnungen. Gesamtausgabe.
