The Magic Flute
By Mozart adapted by Sykes
Directed by Diane Garton Edie
The Magic Flute is an enchanting introduction to the genius of Mozart. OFY's space-age adaptation tells the story of the noble Prince Tamino, the heroic Princess Pamina, the birdman Papageno, the evil Queen of the Night, and her assistant, Three-headed Lady.
Sixteen of your students will perform on stage as fanciful space creatures comprising Sarastro and his "Alien Council of Wisdom." They'll also appear as an enormous dragon.
The Magic Flute's beautiful melodies and comical characters delight youngsters, while thematic points concerning facing challenges and learning to forgive generate thoughtful discussion.
