A serpent, an evil queen, a bird catcher, and a magic flute send Prince Tamino on his way to rescue his princess, Pamina. But her mother, the Queen of the Night, stands in his way. For love to prevail, Tamino and Pamina must traverse through fire, water and more.
Tim Albery’s reverent but imaginative production supports, enriches, and clarifies Mozart’s immortal tale, freely mixing time periods and cultural references to underline the opera’s universal themes. In “Tim Albery's penetrating staging,” wrote the Santa Fe Reporter, “The company brings a Midas touch to Mozart's mythic valediction in one of the warmest, truest and most affecting shows in its history.”
