THE ARCTIC FLUTE
Mozart's The Magic Flute Re-imagined
June 23 - 30th
The Magic Flute re-imagined in the far north, the darkness of an arctic winter gives way to glorious spring in this sparkling, fun-filled adaptation of Mozart’s beloved fantasy. Spanning northern cultures around the world and mixing myth, mystery and the history of polar exploration, the story follows the trials and triumphs of two young people determined to save themselves and each other from the destructive forces of intolerance, ignorance, and greed. As they strive to preserve our endangered environment, they also strengthen the bonds of our shared humanity, all in an attempt to lead the world to a peaceful, enlightened, and sustainable future.
This opera will be sung in German with English Dialogue

Sondheim's Tony Award Winning Musical

“Be careful what you wish for” is the ongoing theme in this imaginative Tony Award®-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine which reminds us to mind the wolf, heed the witch, and honor the giant in the sky! The brilliant musical score interweaves the plots from several well-known fairytales to share a contemporary message about dreams, wishes and the power of rallying together to build a new community across the differences that divide these beloved characters.
