The garage is usually O.K. but yesterday (Jan 22) was a horror. Parked several blocks away.

It was a beautiful and imaginative production. In addition to the costumes and scenary, the voices were brilliant. As a typically non-opera goer, this production may change my current habits.

Quotes & Highlights

“The LA Opera production is a lavish cartoon world…and the animals designer Gerald Scarfe creates are the most bewitching this side of Broadway’s The Lion King.” —Los Angeles Times

Description

LA Opera’s celebrated original production returns, this time under the direction of James Conlon. Legendary English visual artist, satirist, and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe designed the fantastic sets and eyecatching costumes for this Peter Hall production. The Magic Flute is both a fanciful fairy tale and an allegory hinting at deeper mysteries. This ever-popular work has enchanted young and old alike for over two centuries.
