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

My wife and I erroneously assumed that barbershop choral and quartet singing would be limited to music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that it routinely includes jazz, doo-wop, Broadway tunes, and even contemporary songs. The Jubil-Aires acapella choral was terrific, as were the three visiting male and female quartets. We are already planning to attend their next annual show!
Quotes & Highlights
Guest quartets include ’Round Midnight (M-AD champions), The Allies (5th place International medalists) and the Sweet Adelines quartet, Notorious.
