In a mythical land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino flees a terrible serpent. Three ladies in the service of the Queen of the Night save him and offer him a magic flute to ensure his safety on the journey…
One of opera’s most beloved works receives its first new Met staging in 19 years—a daring vision by renowned English director Simon McBurney that The Wall Street Journal declared “the best production I’ve ever witnessed of Mozart’s opera.” Nathalie Stutzmann conducts the Met Orchestra, with the pit raised to make the musicians visible to the audience and allow interaction with the cast. In his Met-debut staging, McBurney lets loose a volley of theatrical flourishes, incorporating projections, sound effects, and acrobatics to match the spectacle and drama of Mozart’s fable. The brilliant cast includes soprano Erin Morley as Pamina, tenor Lawrence Brownlee as Tamino, baritone Thomas Oliemans in his Met debut as Papageno, soprano Kathryn Lewek as the Queen of the Night, and bass Stephen Milling as Sarastro.
These stunning, modern productions feature exclusive, live backstage footage and cast interviews shown during the intervals.
Buffet served with interval drinks. Feel free to dress for the occasion!
