The Magic Flute
Presented by Avoca Beach Theatre
One of opera's most beloved works receives its first new Met staging in 19 years—a daring vision by renowned English director Simon McBurney.
The sublime fairy tale THE MAGIC FLUTE moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism & is told in a singspiel (song-play) format with the musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, navigating the diverse moods of the story and score.
McBurney lets loose a volley of theatrical flourishes, incorporating projections, sound effects, and acrobatics to match the spectacle and drama of Mozart's fable. The brilliant cast includes soprano Erin Morley as Pamina, tenor Lawrence Brownlee as Tamino, baritone Thomas Oliemans in his Met debut as Papageno, soprano Kathryn Lewek as the Queen of the Night, and bass Stephen Milling as Sarastro. Nathalie Stutzmann conducts the Met Orchestra, with the musicians visible to the audience allowing interaction with the cast.
