Music by Wolfgang Mozart • Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder
ROMANTIC LOVE, SPIRITUAL TRANSCENDENCE
AND THE BEGUILING ART OF BIRD-CATCHING
Charming and fantastical, Mozart’s final opera is a profound yet lighthearted work that stars acclaimed former Resident Artists that got their starts right here in Pittsburgh. Sung in English, the production is “gorgeously whimsical” (The Globe and Mail) and great for all ages! Bring the kids (ages 6-12) to THE MAGIC FLUTE for just $5 each. Click this link for details.
