Duquesne University Opera Workshop will be performing Mozart’s The Magic Flute this weekend at Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. I photographed the dress rehearsal and I can tell it’s going to be a great production. It’s hard to believe these voices are students, and they are so serious about their art and about Mozart opera.
On the surface, the story looks like just another silly Mozart opera with a thin plot and lots of repeated lyrics, but underneath that colorful layer is an immense amount of symbolism.
Of course this is from two years ago and the performance was fantastic! View the photo gallery of The Magic Flute on the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall website.
