The UGA Opera Theater and the UGA Symphony Orchestra are combining forces for an exciting performance of Mozart’s masterpiece The Magic Flute. Since its premiere in 1791, the opera has delighted audiences with its tale of a young prince, Tamino, who uses his magical flute in a race to rescue his love, Pamina, from the evil sorcerer Sarastro. The story is said to be an allegory for the education of mankind, progressing from chaos through religious superstition to rationalistic enlightenment. The opera will be performed in German with English supertitles provided by Carroll Freeman, who is serving as visiting stage director.
