This profound and imaginative tale about the triumph of good over evil is brought to life by the glorious voices of the Virginia Opera. The Magic Flute follows the heroic adventures of Prince Tamino and his friend, Papageno, the lonely birdcatcher, in their attempts to rescue the beautiful young maiden, Pamina, who has been kidnapped. Filled with terrifying serpents, moody monarchs, powerful magicians, and mysterious spirits, this fantastical opera is both a charming operetta and a profound exploration of the limits of loyalty and love. This magnificent work was Mozart's final opera, premiering just three months before his death, and is as popular today as it was when it was first performed. Sung in English with English supertitles.
