Wednesday, November 17

At the Clarice Performing Arts Center at UMD-College Park (Nov 17-21) 

Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, composer, Emanuel Schikaneder, librettist, Craig Kier and Jonathan King, conductors, Amanda Consol, director

In Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), Mozart’s miraculous blend of the human and the supernatural, comedy and romance, draws us into a world where a prince, Tamino, and a princess, Pamina, triumph over every obstacle in their search for wisdom and enlightenment and are finally united in love. With an enduring love story at its heart, plus complex villains and an unforgettable comic sidekick in Papageno, The Magic Flute weaves an enchanting tale from start to finish. Sung in German with English dialogue and supertitles.

Pared down to simplified costumes and minimal production, the fall opera is the art form at its most elemental: the singer, the story and the music take center stage. In addition to the MOS singers, this performance features undergraduate students from UMD Choral Activities and the work of M.F.A. design students from the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.

Opera Resonates:
Join us before Sunday’s opera for a special Opera Resonates talk that provides an inside look into this beloved masterpiece on Sunday, November 21 at 1:30 p.m. in the Kay Theatre.
