Dragons and dungeons! A prince on a mission to rescue a damsel in distress! Trials of water and fire! The everlasting battle between day and night, between good and evil! The Magic Flute is back at the Israeli opera. Mozart's charming and magical final opus, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote) returns to the stage of the Israeli Opera for 12 literally sold out performances during the month of May. Music director David Stern leads the opera chorus and orchestra plus many Israeli and international soloists in this operatic journey in which a prince sets on a mission to find his beloved and save the world. Jean-Louis Grinda's new and delightful production focuses on a story that is beyond specific time and place. It is a story of children looking into themselves as they learn the truth about the world and its beauty. As is usual in all Israeli Opera productions, the performances are sung in the original (German in this case) with surtitles in Hebrew and English.
Die Zauberflote, May 13-27 at the Opera House of the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center
