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.

Alexander Zemlinsky based The Dwarf (Der Zwerg) on Oscar Wilde's one-act tragedy "The Birthday of the Infanta." Viktor Ullmann's The Broken Jug (Der zerbrochene Krug) is taken from a comedy by the Romantic German poet Heinrich von Kleist. Vivid imagery, supercharged emotions, and rich late-Romantic orchestral textures characterize these operas. There are beguiling echoes of Mahler, Strauss and Wagner, but the overall effect is one of exciting musical discovery.
Conducted by Music Director James Conlon
Directed by Darko Tresnjak
