Throughout the years, few operas have been as popular with young and old alike as The Magic Flute. Mozart's opera receives an inventive new production by the LA Opera, under the baton of conductor James Conlon. It's the U.S. premiere of a wildly imaginative staging that originated at the Komische Oper Berlin, created by director Barrie Kosky in combination with the British theater group 1927. This Magic Flute is inspired by silent films and Weimar cabaret, and features an astounding blend of film animation, brilliant live singing and playing, and some of the most inventive bits of stage wizardry the opera world has ever seen.
