Die Zauberflöte Pocket Opera (Sunday)
Pocket opera’s are a great way to see a stage production, in much less time than a traditional opera. The next opera is Die Zauberflöte, which means ‘The Magic Flute’. This opera is a mythical tale set between the lands of the Sun and the Moon. The Queen of the Night persuades Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from captivity under the high priest Sarastro; instead, he learns the high ideals of Sarastro’s community and seeks to join it. Separately, then together, Tamino and Pamina undergo several trials of initiation, which end in triumph, with the Queen and her cohorts vanquished. The earthy Papageno, who accompanies Tamino on his quest, fails the trials completely but is rewarded anyway with the hand of his ideal female companion, Papagena. Tickets are still available and can be booked through their website.
