The Magic Flute

The Magic Flute

Music by W. A. Mozart

“One of the greatest operas ever written.”


What's your truth?

Before the Wicked Witch of the West, Snow White’s Evil Queen, or Maleficent, there was the Queen of the Night.

Soar into the soprano stratosphere as her vocal pyrotechnics explode in the notorious gravity-defying rage aria in this magical tale of giant serpents, tricky trials, and daring rescues on a fantastical quest for truth and enlightenment.

Steeped in symbolism, this masterpiece of good vs. evil and logic vs. emotion premiered just two months before Mozart’s death.

In German with English supertitles and dialogue. New production.
