(Italy/USA/2011—directed by William Kentridge)

Celebrated artist William Kentridge went to Italy’s legendary La Scala opera house to stage this joyfully imaginative, dazzling production of Mozart’s beloved opera, and we’re delighted to present every magnificent moment in this exquisite, high-definition digital presentation of a sold-out live performance. You’ll have the best seat in the house for the Queen of the Night’s pyrotechnic high notes to Papageno’s infectious birdsongs; The Magic Flute remains Mozart’s most charming, accessible and completely welcoming opera, and this production is a complete joy to behold. Please note that special ticket prices apply to all performances of The Magic Flute. In German with English subtitles. (3 hours, including intermission).

“Kentridge’s Flute has taken the stage in full, glorious life at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala. It’s a knockout.” –San Francisco Chronicle
