PickUp Truck Opera: The Magic Flute
Date: August 12, 2022
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Hovland Town Hall
An outdoor extravaganza that is fun for all ages!
Mozart’s 1791 opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), is thrust into the not-so-distant future. Our young heroes are early-career professionals entering essential professions with a high risk of burnout. Young Tamino is a first-year teacher at the underfunded Strange Land Middle School. Pamina is an up-and-coming education specialist highjacked by an online learning biotech startup. This fun retelling of the opera uses a cast of singers, puppeteers, and instrumentalists, featuring Mozart’s fiery arias and epic choruses paired with groovy beats from the 90s discotheque, including music by Deee-lite, Pizzicato Five, Stereo MCs, Icelandic star Björk, and more!
