Loyola Opera revives Mozart's 'The Magic Flute'

Loyola Opera revives Mozart's 'The Magic Flute'
LOYOLA PRESS RELEASE - December 11, 2013

The Loyola Opera Theatre will transport audiences to an enchanted fairy-tale world next month with its new production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's mythical opera, "The Magic Flute," Friday, Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m.

Both performances take place in Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall, located in the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola's main campus. A complimentary wine and cheese reception sponsored by the Loyola Alumni Association will precede Friday's performance at 6:30 p.m.

"The Magic Flute," written in a popular style with spoken dialogue, premiered to great acclaim in Vienna, Austria in September 1791. When an evil wizard kidnaps the Queen of the Night's daughter, the heroic Prince Tamino, armed with a magical flute, sets out to rescue her. Accompanied by his bird-catcher companion Papageno, Tamino's journey is riddled with countless obstacles, but ultimately love and light triumph over evil and darkness.

New York stage director and choreographer Bill Fabris and the Loyola Opera Theatre's Carol Rausch will once again team up to lead the production.

Tickets are $40 for preferred seating, $25 for reserved seating, and $15 for Loyola students, faculty and staff. For tickets and information, visit montage.loyno.edu or call 504-865-2074. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
