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.

There is only one reason to see a production of this 2nd rate opera- Wagnerian super-soprano Anja Kampe. While well played and otherise well cast, this opera sounds like a 2nd rate film score.
Quotes & Highlights
- "...vacillates between melodies of Mediterranean grace and textures of otherworldly complexity...One scene melts into another with cinematic ease." --The New Yorker
- "affecting and sympathetic" --The New York Times (on Robert Brubaker in the role of Alviano in the Salzburg Festival performance of Die Gezeichneten)
An unlikely love triangle plays out amidst a group of decadent nobles, who are marked by lust, branded by depravity and stigmatized for their own unspeakable acts. The mystery of the paradise garden island, with its secret love grotto, climaxes in a shocking revelation. This voluptuously evocative work springs to vivid life under the baton of James Conlon and stage direction of the internationally celebrated Ian Judge. Anja Kampe, (Fidelio, Il Tabarro and Die Walküre) takes the part of the work's main love interest, Carlotta. Robert Brubaker makes his LA Opera debut as the tortured Alviano. Returning LA Opera favorites are James Johnson (The Dwarf and The Birds), and Martin Gantner (Tannhäuser).
