Highlands Opera Studio Presents: THE MAGIC FLUTE
August 30 2012


The Magic Flute Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart When a prince wanders into a strange land, he is asked by the grief-stricken queen to rescue her daughter, Pamina, who has been imprisoned by a tyrant, Sarastro. To aid him in his search, she gives the prince a magic flute and sends along the comical bird man, Papageno. Throughout the fantastical journey there are serpents to slay, animals to tame, and trials by fire and water. The genius of Mozart shines bright in this masterfully diverse mix of popular tunes and show-stopping coloratura display. One of the most imaginative entertainments ever created, The Magic Flute blends myth, magic, and an extraordinary variety of wonderful music to deliver the life-affirming message: love conquers all. Three performances only, with English surtitles Sunday August 26 at 2 p.m. and August 28 and 30, 8 p.m. at the Northern Lights Performing Arts Pavilion in Haliburton.
