Mozart's The Magic Flute @ Mercyhurst Institute for Arts and Culture

Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center

Friday, April 15, 2016 - 8:00 pm
Sunday, April 17, 2016 - 2:00 pm 

Mozart’s "The Magic Flute" is one of the most popular and most performed operas of all time. Supposedly, Mozart’s friend Emmanuel Schikaneder asked him to write an opera for his small company just outside Vienna. This theater catered to the entertainment side of his audience’s preferences – fairy-tales, improvised dialogue, spectacular scenic effects, and live animals. Mozart did have some misgivings, but the two were friends so Mozart proceeded. Along the way he used the plot as a vehicle for the “glorification” of freemasonry - these concepts had much influence throughout Europe in the 18th century and boosted a membership that included Haydn and Voltaire. Whatever Mozart’s intensions, "The Magic Flute" lends itself to a wide variety of interpretations and allows directors and designers endless possibilities dramatically and visually.  The D’Angelo Opera Theater will present a fully staged production that may not have “live animals”, but promises to be vocally and visually satisfying and entertaining.

Ticket Prices
Adults: $15.50
Seniors/Students: $12.50
Youth (12 and under): $5
