"The Magic Flute" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

  • The Metropolitan Opera 30 Lincoln Center Plaza New York, NY, 10023 United States (map)

Now a holiday tradition, Julie Taymor’s beloved production of Mozart’s enchanting fairy tale returns in its abridged, English-language version for families. Soprano Erin Morley, last seen at the Met as a brilliant Olympia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann, is the empowered Pamina, and tenor Ben Bliss is the valiant Tamino. Baritone Nathan Gunn is the comic birdcatcher Papageno, and soprano Kathryn Lewek reprises her hair-raising rendition of the malevolent Queen of the Night. Harry Bicket conducts.


Ian will be performing the role of First Armored Man for all performances. Blurb taken from the Metropolitan Opera's website.
