Mozart’s The Magic Flute is one of the most-performed operas worldwide. It is about a prince, Tamino, who is sent by The Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter Pamina from her nemesis Sarastro. Accompanied by the endearingly incorrigible Papageno and with the aid of a magic flute, the besotted Tamino ventures into the temple and quickly finds that all is not as it seems. An enchanting tale that delights audiences of all ages, The Magic Flute is perhaps Mozart’s greatest popular success.
The Magic Flute will reunite several of the cast members from Opera Atelier’s 2006 production, including Colin Ainsworth as Tamino and Olivier Laquerre as Papageno. They will be joined by Ambur Braid as The Queen of the Night, Laura Albino as Pamina, and João Fernandes as Sarastro, as well as Aaron Ferguson, Carla Huhtanen, Cassandra Warner, Laura Pudwell and Curtis Sullivan with the full corps of the Artists of Atelier Ballet. The creative team includes director Marshall Pynkoski, choreographer Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg, set designer Gerard Gauci, and lighting designer Bonnie Beecher. Music Director David Fallis conducts the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra. The Magic Flute runs April 6, 9, 10, 12 and 13, 2013 at 7:30pm and April 7 at 3:00pm and will be sung in English with English Surtitles.
