THE MAGIC FLUTE is presented by PNC.

The Queen of the Night convinces Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter, Pamina, from the clutches of the evil high priest Sarastro. Tamino soon learns that Sarastro is not a villain, but the virtuous leader of an enlightened group that both Tamino and Pamina wish to join. With the help of the colorful, zany bird catcher Papageno and his magic bells, Tamino and Pamina pass a series of entrance tests, thus ensuring that love and goodness carry the day. 

The Magic Flute is staged by NCO favorite David Paul (ToscaAidaIl trovatore) and features a remarkable ensemble cast and the NCO Orchestra all conducted by Joseph Mechavich in his NCO debut. 
The performance will last approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.

Sung in German with spoken English dialogue and projected English texts.
Production sponsors: PNC and C. Thomas Kunz.
