  • 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 has had many adaptations and has inspired other works. However, none of them can compare to this original grand, entertaining, delightful story. This production of The Magic Flute will be semi-staged and sung in English.
