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.

James Conlon conducts Britten's mesmerizing score that brings an unforgettable Henry James classic to the opera stage in a compelling production that perfectly captures the work's supernatural atmosphere. Soprano Patricia Racette makes her role debut as the Governess, determined to protect two small children from menacing spirits. Tenor William Burden and mezzo-soprano Ann Murray makes their Company debuts, respectively as the ghostly Peter Quint and the housekeeper, Mrs. Grose.
