The weather was nice, sunny and warm. I wore casual slacks and a top but take a sweater or jacket, too. The theatre is chilly..

There is a clear language barrier as there are no supertitles and much of the program is in languages I did not understand.

Still, the acting is incredible and the music is fascinating.

Uniquely thought out. Brilliantly presented. The acting and music were both exceptional.

As I know the traditional Magic Flute music and plot well, I did not miss much when the actors sang or spoke in a different language.

This is one of the best productions I've seen in years! The cast was energetic and enthusiastic, and almost all of them both sang and played instruments (marimbas, steel drums, and bongos!). The performers were filled with joy, and it was so...continued
