Theatrical powerhouse Mary Zimmerman (Metamorphoses, The Arabian Nights, The White Snake) triumphantly returns to Berkeley Rep with the West Coast premiere of THE MATCHBOX MAGIC FLUTE , a mesmerizing adaptation of Mozart’s iconic Magic Flute, using only 10 singers and five musicians. Join Tamino on a daring quest to rescue the captive princess Pamina. Encounter dragons, birdmen, and trials by fire in this enchanting microcosm of wonder where magic and music intertwine. Hailed as “a box of treasures, a haze of marvels, a banquet of dreams, the very word delight,” by The Chicago Reader, THE MATCHBOX MAGIC FLUTE will transport you to realms of imagination and wonder. Produced in association with Goodman Theatre.
