The Metropolitan Opera: Die Zauberflöte

Rated NR 180 min. 2015

Experience Mozart's irresistible fantasy in all its glory! Will brave Prince Tamino rescue Princess Pamina from the clutches of the evil Sarastro, and will Papageno the foolish bird catcher learn wisdom enough to help him? The Queen of the Night's aria, with its stratospheric high notes, is just one of the countless highlights in this tale of love and magic, mysterious secrets, and whimsical fantasy. Julie Taymor's (The Lion King) enchanting production captures both the opera's earthy comedy and its enlightened nobility. Met Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts a cast of rising young stars.
