An Opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Fort Collins– The Ralph Opera Center at Colorado State University is excited to announce the performances of the Spring 2018 Opera, The Magic Flute. This will be a one weekend Opera, with nightly 7:30 p.m. performances taking place on April 4 and 6, and a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on April 8. The opera is directed by John Carlo Pierce and conducted by Maestro Wes Kenney.
The Magic Flute was a great success at its premiere in 1791 and has never left the repertoire of the world’s operatic stages. The opera tells the story of Prince Tamino’s quest to rescue Pamina, the daughter of the Queen and of the Night, from the high priest, Sarastro. Through the power of the magic flute, he survives the trials of fire and water, and learns about brotherhood and justice. “The character of Papageno, the bird catcher, is irresistible to opera fans of all ages,” exclaims Pierce.
