An opera for everyone

Tony-winner and Oscar-nominee Julie Taymor brings this innovative and magical recreation of Mozart's The Magic Flute to life - complete with dancing bears and giant flamingos! The production is sung in English and shortened to just 100 minutes to form an abridged version perfect for families and a growing Metropolitan Opera tradition!

The story of The Magic Flute

Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the center of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night. Sent on a mission to save the Queen's captured daughter Pamina with a magic flute and bumbling servant Papageno, Tamino discovers his trials have just begun as he loses his heart to the Princess and comes trealizese that the nature of good and evil in this odd place may not be as clear as they first appear.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
