The Indian River Festival is pleased provide audiences with the unique opportunity to watch a semi-staged opera performance. This new version of "The Magic Flute" was conceived by director Brent Krysa with musical director Peter Tiefenbach, as a streamlined adaptation of the beloved Mozart original, retaining all the best music, and designed in the style of the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. A tale of love, magic, dragons, evil queens and heroic deeds, a new English version of the libretto will bring the story to life in an amusing and contemporary way. This same production will be performed at the prestigious Stratford Summer Music Festival later in the month.
Cast members include sopranos Jennifer Krabbe and Whitney Mather, mezzo soprano Shauna Yarnell, tenor Asitha Tennekoon and baritone Janaka Welihinda.

The first half of this concert will include a performance by the Indian River Festival Chorus singing works by Mozart, followed by "The Magic Flute" in the second half.

There will be a pre-concert talk at 2:30pm - join musical director Peter in conversation with director Brent, as they discuss the process of reimagining one of Mozart’s beloved operas.

The Magic Flute will also be performed on Saturday, August 1st at 7:30pm; regular ticket prices will apply.
