Witness The Magic Flute opera on Broadway in The Metropolitan Opera's enchanting rendition of Mozart's fairy tale. Patrick Furrer and Gareth Morrell conduct an outstanding cast under Julie Taymor's remarkable direction. Tenors Piotr Buszewski and Joshua Blue share the role of Tamino, the courageous prince embarking on a quest to win the witty Princess Pamina, played by sopranos Janai Brugger and Liv Redpath.
The renowned tenor Rolando Villazón reprises his uproarious role as the hapless bird catcher Papageno, alternating with baritone Alexander Birch Elliott, while soprano Kathryn Lewek takes on the role of the Queen of the Night, accompanied by basses Brindley Sherratt and James Creswell as Sarastro. Mozart's enchanting operatic allegory explores the themes of love and truth through the intertwined narratives of two couples—one grounded in the earthly realm, the other existing in the celestial sphere.
