Mozart's THE MAGIC FLUTE (Die Zauberflöte)

Sunday, October 22 at 12 noon | Members $11 | Public $16

Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno – but all is not as it seems.

Mozart’s rival Salieri described The Magic Flute as an ‘operone’ – a great opera. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies, a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fireworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical duets and Papageno’s hearty arias. 3 hours 10 minutes with one interval.
