14877 Zauberflöte           Discovered 1990 Nov. 19 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Mozart's opera Die Zauberflöte ("The Magic Flute") celebrates love, forgiveness and the brotherhood of man. It was his last opera, composed in 1791. The opera depicts many symbols of freemasonary, since Mozart was himself a freemason. This naming is on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth.
