The Collins Center for the Arts Presents Mozart’s, The Magic Flute from the Met

download   A tale to be told throughout the ages to children and adults alike will fill the immense screen at the Collins Center for the Arts on Saturday, January 9th at 1 P.M. This story is enchanting, humorous, and even ostentatious at times. It’s whimsical puppetry and elaborate costumes color the world with its magical childlike innocence in which Prince Tamino must undergo a series of tests in order to marry the Princess Pamina. He is led down a broken path in which he must search unrelentingly for the power of wisdom and reason. An overwhelming solemn atmosphere shrouds Mozart’s fable, though some twinges of comic relief arrives in time to save some tears from falling. Truth is sought at any cost in this allegorical myth. Come and help Tamino solve this question at the Collins Center, after all, anything can happen with the word magic in it.
