Imagine Mozart’s The Magic Flute set in the world of classic video games! The music is Mozart’s original score, with a new English libretto by Josh Shaw and E. Scott Levin. Total run time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes, which includes a 15-minute intermission. 

Stage Direction by Josh Shaw.
With full orchestral accompaniment, conducted by Isaac Selya. 

Following this production’s premiere in Los Angeles at Pacific Opera Project, Opera Magazine wrote that the new production “could bring in a new generation of opera-goers.” Opera Today raved “Pacific Opera Project’s rollicking new take on The Magic Flute is as much endearing fun as a box full of puppies. The staging is also just about as relentlessly and adorably rambunctious, all the while proving to be commendably musically refined… I loved it. I think Mozart would have loved it.”
