Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte” At Westminster Choir College

Alumni of the Westminster Choir College CoOPERAtive Program will perform Mozart’s fairy tale opera Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) Thursday, January 18 through Saturday, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, January 21 at 2 p.m. in the Robert L. Annis Playhouse on the Westminster campus in Princeton. The staged production will be performed with piano accompaniment and sung in German with English dialogue. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for students.

This magical tale presents Prince Tamino and Pamina, young lovers caught in a battle between darkness and light. With the help of Papageno the bird catcher and three spirits guiding the way, love and truth triumph over all. Originally written for popular theater, Die Zauberflöte is meant to speak to audiences of all ages. Thomas Bagwell conducts and James Kenon Mitchell directs. The cast is composed of alumni of Westminster’s CoOPERAtive summer opera training program.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, through the box office at (609) 921-2663, or online at www.rider.edu/arts. All proceeds from these performances will benefit the Westminster CoOPERAtive Program.
