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.

This is my first time seeing the Magic Flute. I loved the costumes and the sets. The voices were excellent. We had first row seats and it was interesting to be close but impossible to read the words above the stage. At intermission we moved back.
I recommend this opera for first timers.
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
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.
