Program Notes: 

The Maryland Opera Studio’s annual piano opera — a staged work with minimal costumes and sets, accompanied only by piano — puts the voices of the young performers squarely in the spotlight.

Die Zauberflöte, Mozart’s last opera, is a mysterious fairy tale of good and evil. Innocents Tamino and Pamina search for the truth in a confusing landscape full of serpents, spirits, sorcerers and priests. Who can they trust? On what can they rely? And will Papageno ever find a girl of his very own?

The Magic Flute (as it is known in English) sounds as fresh today as it did in 1791 and is the perfect introduction for the first-time operagoer.
