All Opera lovers out there... it's time.

Please join the waiting list if you're positive about attending and to get the details regarding our discount prices for this show. Once you've purchased your ticket(s), please let me know in order to update your RSVP status.

You may also contact me for details by clicking HERE.

Discounted ticket prices start at $14, and we will be entitled to choose the area and prices/seats of our choice. Keep in mind this is not a group seating arrangement for obvious reasons. However, we'll have the chance to meet an hour before the show for some vino. The opera starts at 8pm. Remember to get your tickets sooner than later since some seating sections are already filling up.

The Magic Flute premiered in Vienna, Austria in 1791 and ever since it has continued to be one of the world's most frequently performed operas. Its harmonic structure and sheer beauty have made it a key monument of western classical music.

Furthermore, this opera is also prominent for its Enlightenment philosophy portraying the education of mankind, progressing from chaos through religious superstition to rationalistic enlightenment. And it is said that the Queen of the Night represents a dangerous form of obscurantism, or according to some, the empress Maria Theresa.

By the way, the role of Queen of the Night will be performed by the sensational young American soprano Jeanette Vecchione. (See below)

Join us then for a unique occasion where stage, music, actors, and talented singers come together in the shape and form of a masterpiece by one of the greatest composers in history, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

This is an amateur video, from someone in the audience, of Jeanette Vecchione singing the same aria although her rendition at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France is extraordinary:

And this is another opera favorite, the Papageno and Papagena duet:

    This opera is so rich in musical beauty, featuring eternal melodies that have been seducing opera-goers ever since 1791, that it can only make one wonder about the genius behind it.
    Tonight's production of The Magic Flute has been the best in years, it was fun, witty, and enlightening. The singing was outstanding in the voice of Jeanette Vecchione's queen of the night, as expected, and Jonathan Michie's performance as Papageno was quite charming. The roles of Tamino and Pamina were sung gracefully. And it was cool to see our very own Ania as the tiger and the girl in blue! Last but not least, it is such a joy to go to the opera with the Cultured Circles crowd, it makes it so much better!

    It was a real treat to enjoy this production with you and the other members of the group. Jeanette Vecchione's voice alone made this a very special evening. Thank you again, G, for all you do to bring us the best events the area has to offer.
