Mozart’s The Magic Flute
A distressed queen, a kidnapped princess, a handsome prince and, of course, his trusty sidekick combine to create a colorful fantasy in The Magic Flute. Mozart’s unique opera blends myth, magic, and music to deliver its life-affirming message that love conquers all. Tasked with rescuing the princess, the prince Tamino and his sidekick Papageno set out on their quest with nothing more than enchanted musical instruments. They undergo trials of virtue, discretion, and charity and soon realize that all may not be as it seems in this magical land. Come be a part of one of Mozart’s most fantastical journeys, conducted by Utah Symphony’s Music Director Thierry Fischer.
