In Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), Mozart’s miraculous blend of the human and the supernatural, comedy and romance, draws us into a world where a prince, Tamino, and a princess, Pamina, triumph over every obstacle in their search for wisdom and enlightenment and are finally united in love. With an enduring love story at its heart, plus complex villains and an unforgettable comic sidekick in Papageno, Die Zauberflöte weaves an enchanting tale from start to finish. Sung in German with English supertitles.

Pared down to simplified costumes and minimal production, the fall opera is the art form at its most elemental: the singer, the story and the music take center stage. In addition to the MOS singers, this performance features undergraduate students from UMD Choral Activities and the work of M.F.A. design students from the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.

About the Maryland Opera Studio:
Under the direction of Craig Kier, the Maryland Opera Studio is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, it is building contemporary audiences for opera and advancing the art that sustains them.
