The Royal Opera presents Magic Flute

The Royal Opera presents Mozart’s glorious opera on-screen at the Smith Rafael Film Center!

Mozart’s glorious opera is brought enchantingly to life in director David McVicar’s production, with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane, that embraces both the seriousness and comedy of the great composer’s work.

The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies.

Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fireworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical love duets and Papageno’s hearty arias, is conducted by Julia Jones and performed by Mauro Peter, Siobhan Stagg, Roderick Williams and others.

Sung in German with English subtitles. Approximate running time is 190 minutes, including one intermission.
