The Magic Flute

Saturday, October 31, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 1, 2015, at 2:00 p.m.;Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center

The Magic Flute, written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was in the form of a Singspiel, an opera that includes both singing and spoken dialogue. This two-act opera, to be sung in English, has had many adaptations and has inspired other works. However, none of them can compare to this original grand, entertaining, delightful story.
