I just turned my boob-tube on & discovered they're doing Mozart's Magic Flute! It's the shortened version of Die Zauberflote, but that might be a good thing for some of you And it's in English! I usually cringe at English-ified versions of operas, but this version is excellent; the libretto translation was done by J.D. McClatchy, whose poems I like very much. And the set design by Julie Taymor is whimsical & spectacular...
I watched this last night. It is a delicious hoot!
The set is a delight, Papageno is hysterical, the libretto is tasty.
Thanks for posting! I would never have found this broadcast otherwise.
Glad you liked it, Elk! I'm still kicking myself for having missed the production when it played at the Met.
