It would have been a 5 star performance could I have seen the whole stage. The way the opera was staged was different from conventional staging. Half the action took place on the stage, the other half on two platforms very high up. That half...continued

I thought the animation was creative, but I felt like I was watching a movie, not a live performance. The music and singing were wonderful.

A great deal of my enjoyment of shows depends on where I sit. Could not afford anything other than rear balcony even through Goldstar and upon receiving the tickets found out we'd be sitting in the middle of a row, my absolute horror! We tried to...continued

The principals' voices are excellent; the comedy had the audience tittering in our seats; the orchestra is spot on; but what makes this production a 5-star hit are the visuals. The hand-drawn projected imagery is incredible. Go! Even if you don't...continued

We had center seats in row R of the Orchestra. We could see well, but the sound was terrible. We could hear the women singing pretty well, but could not hear the men very well and could not hear the three boys at all. I enjoyed the animation,...continued

Fantastic production! I wish LA Opera would present more of this caliber, and less of the dull traditional productions it likes to put on their stage. "The Magic Flute" and "Einstein" really saved an otherwise boring season. Also, I was pleasantly...continued

What a great re-imagining of the Mozart's Magic Flute. This invokes a nuanced experience for our technological age that will be accessible to younger audiences. It helps one to rethink the political undertones hidden in Mozart's score and...continued

If you set aside the notion that opera is about the music, this was a great entertainment experience. Unique, wholly original, entirely visually engrossing, just not a production where you leave raving about the singing.

This is the famous LA Opera production of Mozart’s beloved opera re-imagined as a silent film with cue cards replacing all the spoken dialogue highlighting the awesome singing, and singers/actors appearing through the screen seamlessly integrated...continued

L.A. Opera productions have never ceased to amaze me. Expensive, maybe, but for 3-5 hours worth of transport to another planet, well worth it!

While the use of video graphics was exiting at the beginning of the performance, it became absolutely boring and tedious. I had never seen so many people yawning at the beginning of intermission; I left at intermission and noticed that others left...continued

Other than So Young Park cast average. Although cute and much less costly to opera companies found the holograms distracting taking away from the performers

This was a unique experience. Besides having great music and singing, the staging was phenomenal. It was a wonderful integration of art and light.

The concept was fun (putting the singers in an old b/w movie) but after 20 minutes simply exhausting. In 2D there can't be any chemistry between the singers, or between the audience and singers. Opera is supposed to be about singing! But I'm...continued
