I really like The Magic Flute as well.In a meta sense, what hits me the most was the bravery Mozart had in composing it - he composed it in German, challenging the prejudice that only Italian and French were suitable languages for the Opera.He laid the basis for the German language Opera with The Magic Flute.
One of my favorite movies is the movie Amadeus and the scene where Antonio Salieri explains to the priest a piece composed by Mozart. Check at 22:45 of the clip below (sorry in Spanish) but the way that Salieri explains is so intense that I am very emotional.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL_AS2PKtlw

Don't agree here my friend. I mean maybe it is presented like that, but Opera is one of the finest arts and I think it's a matter of culture and mind to like it, not gender.
Has nothing to do with gender. It is a cultural thing. Men in my family (Irish) attend Operas.
