Kids Commute - Papageno Week!

Erwin Sembach as Papageno, 1914

We'll spend some quality time with the adorable bird man from Mozart's "The Magic Flute."

This week, the Metropolitan Opera Broadcast will feature Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute" in English.

To help get ready, we're revisiting last year's "Papageno Week!" We'll meet one of the main characters of the opera, an adorable bird catcher who wants a Mrs. Bird Catcher more than anything in the world!

Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m., 3:20 p.m., or any time at the links below.

And be sure to catch "The Magic Flute" in English on Classical IPR Saturday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.!
