Mozart's whimsical opera The Magic Flute springs to life via the Washington National Opera and vivid, colorful sets and costumes from Japanese-American artist Jun Kaneko. This adventure-filled opera begins as the Queen of the Night sends the brave Prince Tamino on a quest to rescue her daughter from an evil sorcerer. Accompanied by the clumsy and comical birdcatcher Papageno, Tamino braves all obstacles to find the princess and defeat the sorcerer, only to find that all is not what it seems. Tamino's adventure is marked by dramatic plot twists as trickery and betrayals are revealed, and the true villain emerges. This production is sung in English with projected English titles. Learn More

“One of the true great Verdi baritones of our generation.” —BBC Music, on Alan Opie
What happens when an old knight who fancies himself a ladies’ man sends identical love letters to two married women? Plenty, as Sir John Falstaff (Alan Opie), Shakespeare’s drunken, but much loved rascal, discovers when the merry wives of Windsor (and a few furious husbands) decide to teach him a lesson. Verdi’s last opera shows the master at the peak of his power and displays some of his most inventive melodies. This stunning production is directed by Christian Räth and conducted by Sebastian Lang-Lessing in his WNO debut.
Making his WNO debut, baritone Alan Opie was nominated for the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Falstaff and hailed as “…one of the true great Verdi baritones of our generation.” –BBC Music
