Metropolitan Opera: The Magic Flute

Karen Almond
Metropolitan Opera

The Metropolitan Opera’s live Saturday matinee radio broadcasts continue with a treat for the holiday season: Mozart’s The Magic Flute.

This classic operatic fairy tale, sung in English and under two hours long, is ideal for listeners of all ages.

Maestro Jane Glover leads an extraordinary cast headed by Matthew Polenzani and Hera Hyesang Park as Tamino and Pamina, a prince and princess on a journey to love and light; Rolando Villazón in a noteworthy network role debut as the birdcatcher Papageno; Morris Robinson as the high priest Sarastro; and Kathryn Lewek as the fierce Queen of the Night.

The Magic Flute will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 18. Listen to it on Classical IPR!
