The Magic Flute
Since its 1791 premiere, Mozart's The Magic Flute has been one of the
most beloved works in the operatic repertoire and why not, with a dragon opening
the 1st act chasing a handsome prince who is searching for the kidnapped
princess with his kooky sidekick, overcoming the evil Queen and seeking truth
and justice. The storyline sounds like a current hit movie!
