A dazzling celebration of love conquering all, The Magic Flute transports you into an enchanted world where good battles the forces of darkness.

Director Barrie Kosky turned heads when his silent-film production of The Magic Flute dazzled audiences in 2013. A production of the Komische Oper Berlin, Kosky brought it back to LA Opera in 2016. And now the third time will be quite the charm. With the seamless interaction between onstage performers and projected hand-drawn animation, this inventive and charming interpretation brilliantly captures Mozart's delightful blend of high comedy and adventure.
