by BWW News Desk - Oct 12, 2015

MINNEAPOLIS (October 5, 2015) – After breaking box office records in 2014, Mozart's timeless comedy The Magic Flutereturns to Minnesota Opera (November 14 – 22 at the Ordway) in the revolutionary production by Komische Oper Berlin and the British theater group 1927. Fantastical hand-drawn animation, synchronized with live performance, sets a surreal stage upon which its quirky characters, all cleverly based on familiar silent-movie personalities, explore love, truth and the pursuit of enlightenment. This acclaimed production has been seen in just two American cities – Los Angeles and Saint Paul – but has received international praise. Britain's Guardian said, “This production is a joy to watch: an enchanting, big-hearted, supremely lovable piece of whimsical animation and nimble stagecraft.” The New York Times concurred: “... this production stays miraculously fresh, sustaining surprise and delight in its two-and-a-half hours.” Packed with exquisite singing and stage wizardry, Mozart's final opera will enchant young and old alike.
