(The Magic Flute/La flauta mágica)
libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder
AUGUST 24 & 25, 2007
Papageno, the birdcatcher, on their
fantastical journey for love and wisdom
in this charming family opera.
Will they help the Queen of the Night
get back her daughter, Pamina,
and the power she craves?
Or will they join the temple of the
great Sarastro and his priests,
facing dangerous trials
with the promise of great reward?
With a little help from a magic flute,
our heroes will surely find their way.
