The Magic Flute at South High - 2014
South High, one of the few non-specialized public high schools in the nation with an active opera program, has performed operas for over 40 years. Last April, South’s Music Department performed The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote), by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Magic Flute is a love story with elements of fantasy, free-flying imagination, and easily accessible charm. The handsome hero is on a quintessential and, ultimately, successful quest to rescue the beautiful and courageous daughter of the Queen of the Night. He is accompanied by a bird seller. In addition, the Queen’s three Ladies-in-Waiting offer a set of chimes and the magic flute.
