NEWS // Bernofsky, Mizrahi Keep the Flute Magic
posted November 21, 2014
The Magic Flute is one of the most well-known operas in the world. With its fairy-tale overtones of good and evil, its love stories and musical themes, including the notoriously challenging Queen of the Night Aria, it appeals to a wide audience. It is one of the world's most frequently performed operas, and it is often used to introduce children to operatic form.

Still, despite its popularity, The Magic Flute rests on dated values and assumptions, which presented a challenge for designer Isaac Mizrahi and literary translator Susan Bernofsky (Faculty) when they created a new production of the opera.
