CIM Opera Theater Presents Mozart’s The Magic Flute
The CIM Opera Theater—with director Dean Southern, conductor Harry Davidson and the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra—will present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute February 26, February 28 and March 1 in Kulas Hall.
In this fantastical story of a handsome lost prince, his comic sidekick, a beautiful princess in distress, a commanding high priest and a bitter, vengeful queen, Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno search for the women of their dreams. The story involves a quest, and, like most comic operas, complications and challenges abound, but everything sorts out happily in the end as two loving couples head to the altar. Childlike spirits, conniving villains, enchanted bells, and of course, a magic flute—they’re all part of this high-flying adventure.
The opera will be performed in German with English translations projected above the stage. The production is funded in part by a grant from the John P. Murphy Foundation.
