Mozart’s The Magic Flute, a delightful commentary on love, forgiveness, tolerance and the brotherhood of mankind, is one of the most beloved operas of all time. Filled with star-studded queens, dragons, bird-catchers, heroes and heroines and noble priests, The Magic Flute is a spectacular potpourri of worldly and heavenly delights all set with sublime enchantment to some of Mozart’s greatest music. The opera, which was last performed by OPERA Iowa in 2002, will be sung in English with piano accompaniment.
