Bay View Music Festival Presents: The Magic Flute
800 Bay Harbor Drive
Petoskey, MI 49770
“A WHIMSICAL YET PROFOUND MASTERPIECE THAT VENTURES AS DEEP INTO THE HUMAN SPIRIT AS ART GOES.”
The Magic Flute, Mozart’s fantasy opera, contains some of the most beautiful music ever composed. Sung in German with English dialogue and English supertitles with chamber orchestra, this timeless classic is entertaining for the whole family, full of mystery, humor, effervescent melodies and stunning vocal talent in the area’s only fully staged opera.
A magical, mysterious journey awaits you with Prince Tamino and his pal, the irreverent bird catcher Papageno. Tamino must endure being attacked by a dragon, a dangerous mission to rescue the duplicitous Queen of the Night’s daughter Pamina from the high priest Sarastro and prove himself worthy through an epic set of challenges set forth by the sacred order of priests of the Temple of the Sun!
The Bay View Music Festival hosts over 120 auditioned, collegiate musicians each summer as a vital component of the Association’s summer programming and conservatory, one of the oldest of its kind in the country.
