16CU1: Bach Society, The Magic Flute
Saturday, April 23, 2016 at 7:00PM

Roone Arledge Auditorium
Lerner Hall
New York, NY 10027

We are currently sold out for the April 23rd performance, but there will be a standby line starting at 6:45pm. It is highly likely that standers-by will be successful, so hold on tight!

Join us for Columbia's biggest opera production yet: a new abridged English version of Mozart's "The Magic Flute". Fairy tales -- the cotton-candy wisps of fantasy that comfort us as children and invigorate us in old age. In this tale, we follow the absurd yet earnest antics of a grieving queen, a determined prince, a kind-hearted princess, a silly bird catcher, and an elusive king: all carefully packaged into a sweet yet unmistakably powerful allegory on the unbreakability of the human spirit, the supremacy of Enlightenment values, and the power of music amidst adversity. Running time: 90mins There will be a free un-ticketed performance on April 16th at 7pm in St. Paul's Chapel, in addition to the performance on April 23rd in Roone Arledge Auditorium.
