Pacific Opera Project brings back its 2019 season-opening tour-de-force production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute AKA #Superflute, set in classic video games from the early 1990s. The “super” production transports Papageno, Tamino, and the gang to the land of video games resembling Mario Bros. and Zelda with a new English libretto by Artistic Director Josh Shaw and E. Scott Levin. Opera Magazine wrote that the new production "could bring in a new generation of opera-goers” and Opera Today raved “Pacific Opera Project’s rollicking new take on The Magic Flute is as much endearing fun as a box full of puppies. And as ingenious Artistic Director Josh Shaw has reimagined the piece (marketed as #Superflute), the staging is also just about as relentlessly and adorably rambunctious, all the while proving to be commendably musically refined… I loved it. I think Mozart would have loved it. If not, to hell with him!”AIR changed Broadway and live entertainment when it debuted at the Biltmore Theatre. Since then it has been one of the most successful shows of all time with more hit songs played on the radio than any other Broadway show.
This production, produced by original Broadway Producer Michael Butler, will feature the songs you love like AQUARIUS, DONNA, MANCHESTER ENGLAND, WHERE DO I GO?, GOOD MORNING STARSHINE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABIE, BABY, AIN'T GOT NO, LET THE SUNSHINE and many more!
