A love-struck prince sets out on a fantastic adventure to rescue the Queen of the Night's daughter in Mozart's final opera.  Conducted by WNO Music Director Philippe Auguin, this "zesty and imaginative new production" (San
Francisco Chronicle
) is guaranteed to captivate audiences of all ages.


 

 

ABOUT THE MAGIC FLUTE  by  Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART
Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder

The Magic Flute will be sung in English with English subtitles.

New production:  Co-production with San Francisco Opera Association, Opera Omaha, Lyric Opera of Kansas City, and Opera Carolina


A prince's quest leads to love at first sight - but to prove his worth in marriage, he must first survive trials of wisdom and devotion. Lost in a faraway land, young Tamino is enlisted by the Queen of the Night to rescue her lovely daughter Pamina from the hands of Sarastro, an evil sorcerer. With the aid of a magic flute and the bumbling, lovelorn Papageno by his side, Tamino sets out on a fantastic adventure filled with danger and temptation, culminating in one final test at a mystical temple.

Mozart's final opera, The Magic Flute is simultaneously a delightful fairy tale and a profound reflection on spiritual enlightenment. Featuring a colorful kaleidoscope of sets and costumes by Japanese American artist Jun Kaneko--it's also a perfect opera for the entire family. American director Harry Silverstein, whose The Marriage of figaro wowed WNO audiences in 2010, directs an attractive young cast, many in their WNO debuts.
