Why See Seattle Opera: The Magic Flute?
MOZART'S MAGICAL OPERA
Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the centre of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night. Sent on a mission to save the Queen's captured daughter Pamina with a magic flute and bumbling servant Papageno, Prince Tamino's trials have just begun as he loses his heart to the Princess and comes to realise that the nature of good and evil in this odd place may not be as clear as they first appear.
One of Mozart's most enchanting operas, this supernatural tale, accompanied by his fine score has enjoyed much success since its premiere in Vienna in 1791. This stunning production from Seattle Opera features award-winning costumes by Zandra Rhodes and is a surefire family favorite, and the perfect introduction to opera for audiences of all ages.
