The Magic Flute - Mozart meets Maurice Sendak and a little magic.
Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart / Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder
Production from Portland Opera with Designs by Maurice Sendak
This great adventure starts with an unexpected pair: Tamino, a handsome young prince, and Papageno, his silly bird-catcher sidekick. When the mysterious Queen of the Night enlists the duo to rescue her kidnapped daughter Pamina, a fantastic journey follows. Armed with a magic flute and bells, they’re prepared for whatever trials they may face. However, not all is as it seems—and not everyone can be trusted.
Friends will become foes and enemies will become allies in Mozart’s final and beloved opera. A whimsical production designed by children’s author/illustrator Maurice Sendak, known for his rumpus-filled artistry, sets a playful landscape for this enchanting fairy tale. Rich with colorful characters, unforgettable vocal acrobatics, and evocative symbols and allegory, Tamino’s quest for love and truth is fantastical entertainment for all ages.
Join alumni from Brown University, Colgate University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Lehigh University, Smith College, University of Chicago and Wake Forest University on Friday, November 22 for Alumni Night at the Washington National Opera.
