Die Zauberflote Tickets

  • About Die Zauberflöte

    Legendary director Julie Taymor, who won a Tony Award for staging the Broadway smash musical The Lion King, brings her transcendent production of Mozart’s magical Die Zauberflöte back to the Metropolitan Opera.

    Set in a mythical land between the sun and the moon, Die Zauberflöte is the enchanted tale of a handsome prince named Tamino who sets off on a quest to rescue the lovely Pamina, a Queen’s daughter who has been imprisoned by the evil Sarastro. Accompanied by birdcatcher Papageno and entrusted with a magic flute that will help ensure a safe journey, Tamino and his cohort set out to save Pamina, who Tamino instantly falls in love with upon catching a glimpse of her portrait.

    Julie Taymor's playful staging features dancing bears and giant flamingos, and the opera will be sung in English to make it more accessible for families. One of the most engaging scores in all of opera will be sung by a first-rate cast including Janai Brugger and Ben Bliss with Christopher Maltman reprising his role as Papageno. Antony Walker conducts all dates.

    Sung in English with Met Titles in English, German and Spanish.

    Good for kids?
    For children who are patient, there’s much excitement to behold in this production.

    Did you know?
    Mozart's opera is filled with references to Freemasonry and Enlightenment philosophy, with the forces of reason and education battling superstition and mysticism.

    The composer was thrilled at the positive reception of his work in 1791, but he had already fallen ill from the sickness that would claim his life in December of the same year, when he was only 35.
