The Magic Flute
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Estimated runtime: 3 hours including one 30 minute intermission
Sung in English with English and German subtitles
PREPARE TO BE ENCHANTED
Mozart’s genius is supremely evident in his last opera,
The Magic Flute
. The deceptively simple fairytale story is matched with some of the most
music ever written. From the coloratura pyrotechnics of the
Queen of the Night’s
arias, to the lyrical anguish of
Pamina’s “Ach ich fühls,” to the
love duet of Papageno and Papagena, the music illustrates what sets Mozart apart from his many rivals: a unique and profound understanding of humanity.
With a vibrant, sophisticated use of color and kinetic forms,
(a renowned ceramicist and visual artist) has created a magical world that, like Mozart’s music, is engaging in its simplicity, but illustrates the depth of the story magnificently. Harry Silverstein direct's this co-production with the San Francisco Opera and Gary Wedow will conduct members of The Kansas City Symphony. Opera Previews - 1 hour prior to curtain in the Muriel Kauffman Theatre auditorium presented by the Lyric Opera Guild.
