The Met: Live in HD: Special Holiday Encore Screenings of Motzart’s "The Magic Flute"
In Julie Taymor’s fantastical production of Mozart’s classic opera, the hero Tamino teams up with the comical bird-catcher Papageno to win the hand of the beautiful princess Pamina. To find her, the two unlikely friends must navigate through a mysterious world of supernatural dangers and avoid the wrath of Pamina’s vengeful mother, the evil Queen of the Night.
The abridged version of this kid-friendly opera, sung in English, provides a family entertainment alternative for the holiday season. Bring the whole family to watch this beautiful fantasy on the big screen at the Taos Community Auditorium Thursday, December 22 at 7 PM.
Running time: 110 minutes
"This glittering pachinko machine of a production has split opinions among grown-up viewers, but I suspect its approach is crucial to the work’s success as an entertainment for children. You are less likely to get bogged down in questions about cerebral trials while distracted by Ms. Taymor’s dancing bears, pirouetting flamingos and bearded imps.” — The New York Times
