The Magic Flute

By the power of music, we walk cheerfully through the dark night...

A prince, a princess, a bird-catcher, and a host of other fascinating characters invite you into a fantastical world of charmed musical instruments, mystical rituals, and a quest for enlightenment and wisdom.

Written in the last year of his life, Mozart’s sublime opera is part fairy tale, part adventure story, and all enchantment.  Come revel in this glorious music that has been enjoyed around the world for over two centuries.
