Who can fail to be delighted and moved by the triumph of love and goodness in The Magic Flute? Join us for this operatic fairytale as Prince Tamino strives for the hand of Pamina, accompanied by his lovable sidekick Papageno. You’ll meet the evil Queen of the Night — with her stratospheric high notes and show-stopping arias — and the virtuous high priest Sarastro in a story that encompasses both the real and the fantastical. Revel in this combination of heartwarming comedy and true heroism, and the unparalleled genius and beauty of Mozart’s music. A wonderful introduction to opera for all ages.
