April 13-14, the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra closes its 2018-19 elements-themed season with a staged production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
Sung and spoken in its original German, this production will have English translations projected above the stage.
Visionary stage director Sarah Hartmann, returns with a fresh interpretation of this beloved opera. Hartmann created (and acted in) the DSO’s groundbreaking Romeo and Juliet “Star-Crossed” program in March of 2018.
“The Magic Flute is such a special opera,” notes Music Director and Conductor, William Intriligator. “It is an incredible combination of fairytale and romance with some of the most sublime music and exulted themes one can imagine. This is a story that can be enjoyed by all ages! I remember loving it when I was a young child. Mozart includes some of the most familiar and basic of themes such as finding your soulmate, falling in love, bravery, discovering right from wrong and truth from lies. Mozart’s music captures it all. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see this beautiful story performed live in Dubuque!”
