The Magic Flute

When: Fri, Feb 25, 2011 - 7:30 pm

Where: Cahn Auditorium

Jay Lesenger, director; Dean Williamson, conductor; YuChi Chou, assistant conductor; Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra

In Mozart’s enchanting opera, a handsome prince and an abducted princess are caught between the warring forces of the Queen of the Night and the Priests of the Sun, but the powers of the magic flute lead the young lovers to truth and light. Their comic companion, the bird catcher Papageno, uses his magic bells to find a pretty wife and a good dinner. For more than 200 years Mozart’s fairy tale has delighted young and old with its fantastic mix of intriguing symbolism, spirited comedy, and ravishing music. This production uses Andrew Porter’s acclaimed English translation of Emanuel Schikaneder’s libretto.

Please be advised that this performance includes strobe lights and artificial fog.

Tickets are $22 for the general public, $18 for seniors and Northwestern faculty and staff, and $8 for students.
