In conjunction with our TCAN partners and the Harvard Club we invite you to join us for the Minnesota Opera performance of Mozart's The Magic Flute.
Mozart’s timeless comedy sprouts wings and flies in this boundary-busting production by Komische Oper Berlin and the British theater group 1927. Fantastical animation, synchronized with live performance, sets a surreal stage upon which a quirky cast of characters explore love, truth and the pursuit of enlightenment. Minnesota Opera remounts the show that thrilled audiences of all ages and still has the critics talking.
