The Lyric Opera of Chicago presents The Magic Flute, Mozart's colorful and entertaining opera.

Prince Tamino is in search of the girl of his dreams, with the hapless birdcatcher Papageno as his sidekick. The mysterious Queen of the Night tells Tamino that her daughter, Pamina, is the one for him, and that if Tamino can rescue Pamina from the evil Sarastro, he can marry her. As it turns out, however, Sarastro is not the evil one at all.

This wildly popular 1791 opera includes some of the best-known opera highlights ever, such as the Queen of the Night's "Revenge Aria," which Audrey Luna sings in this production. She is joined by Charles Castronovo as Tamino, Nicole Cabell as Pamina, Stéphane Degout as Papageno and Günther Groissböck as Sarastro.
