U of M Opera Theatre presents W.A. Mozart's The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), April 15-18

The University of Minnesota School of Music's University Opera Theatre will present W.A. Mozart's The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) this April at Ted Mann Concert Hall. Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 15 through Saturday, April 17 and at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 18. Featuring music by W.A. Mozart and libretto by Emmanuel Schikaneder. In German with English Supertitles.

Our production of this lyric drama in two acts encourages performers and audiences alike to peer behind the veneer of Mozart's incontestably sublime melodies and to explore new possibilities of meaning in an opera which goes to the very heart of the values and emotions which underpin human existence. Join the The Queen of the Night and Sarastro again in the University Opera Theatre's inventive take on this opera classic. Visit www.opera.umn.edu for complete information.
