Allegra’s Magic Flute
Allegra’s Magic Flute’ re-visits Mozart’s most famous opera and offers an ideal introduction to the glory of this art form!
In this whimsical story, Allegra finds a golden flute on her way home from school. Blowing on it, her street turns into a dark forest. She blows again and out pops Papageno, a strange bird-catcher with a padlock on his mouth. Through the power of music and the magic of make-believe, Allegra and Papageno embark on an adventure of sharing and self-discovery involving a four-legged, two-winged, fire-breathing dragon, the scary Queen of the Night. How can Allegra help her new friend and get home in time for her music lesson?
Featuring Nicholas Murphy, baritone; Taylor Donald, soprano and accompanied by piano and cello.
