Join WQXR on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm for two special family presentations of the beloved classic The Magic Flute, performed by the Amore Opera.
Designed especially for children ages 4-12, and just 90 minutes long, the fantastical fairy-tale opera about bird catchers, princes and enchanted instruments will be sung in an English translation with narration set to piano.
With lush costumes and colorful backdrops, The Magic Flute at The Greene Space is intended to introduce children to Mozart and opera. Hosting the performance is WNYC’s Manoush Zomorodi.
