About Mozart's The Magic Flute - Holiday Presentation

The Met’s family-friendly production of Mozart’s dazzling fairy tale returns, sung in English and running under two hours. Patrick Furrer and Gareth Morrell share conducting duties, leading a standout cast in Julie Taymor’s magical staging. Tenors Piotr Buszewski and Joshua Blue share the role of Tamino, the brave prince on a quest to win the clever princess Pamina, sung by sopranos Janai Brugger and Liv Redpath. The cast also features famed tenor Rolando Villazón reprising his uproarious portrayal as the luckless bird catcher Papageno, alternating with baritone Alexander Birch Elliott, and soprano Kathryn Lewek as the Queen of the Night, alongside basses Brindley Sherratt and James Creswell as Sarastro.

World Premiere: Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden, Vienna, 1791. A sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte in the original German) was written for a theater located just outside Vienna with the clear intention of appealing to audiences from all walks of life. The story is told in a singspiel (“song-play”) format characterized by separate musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, an excellent structure for navigating the diverse moods, ranging from solemn to lighthearted, of the story and score.

Intense, Great staging, Entertaining, Great singing, Fabulous puppets

See it if you love The Magic Flute. This is a extraordinary whimsical new staging using puppets to extend the theatricality of the production.

Don’t see it if you feel stressing production elements distracts from the singing even though the singing in this production is spectacular.

Delightful, Entertaining, Great singing, Great staging, Quirky

See it if I loved the use of puppetry in opera. Lots of humor and actual acting. Shortened version in English makes it more accessible. Rotating set!

Don’t see it if A little too long for a one act.

Those puppets, though, Delightful, Great staging, Great singing, Ahh, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah!

See it if It's super fun;great 1st opera for kids. ALSO a great 1st opera for adults. Fantastic puppetry & a fun story. Short enough you'll want more.

Don’t see it if You want the traditional German version. But having seen both versions this year, I can say that the original's better, but this is more fun

Beautiful, Great staging, Exquisite, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy immersion into fairytale settings and costumes. The costumes are playful and memorable. It’s succinct for an opera, & in English!

Don’t see it if You don’t not enjoy traditional tropes in heightened characterization or you want to see something classically presented. Very interpretive
