Vancouver Opera present a gloriously inventive, somewhat "meta" production of Mozart's classic opera! Essentially a performance within a performance, the tale of this version starts at a garden party in the year of The Magic Flute's first performance (1791), where guests are watching a staging of The Magic Flute! A timeless classic for the ages, this is a fantastic way to experience the magic of opera, for both beginners and seasoned pros!
What is the story of The Magic Flute?
Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the centre of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night. Sent on a mission to save the Queen's captured daughter Pamina with a magic flute and bumbling servant Papageno, Prince Tamino's trials have just begun as he loses his heart to the Princess and comes to realize that the nature of good and evil in this odd place may not be as clear as they first appear.
