The Magic Flute

…and now for something completely different: three 27-meter-high, fire-spewing dragons, mythical creatures, dozens of stunt artists, massive puppets, the Queen of the Night and a watery stage. What is it? It’s Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” as interpreted in David Pountney’s grand-scale production for the Bregenz Opera Festival. And now you don’t even have to travel to Austria to behold this magical, mind-blowing spectacle, because you can see it during a special engagement showing at the Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas.

Pountney’s “The Magic Flute” will show at the Liberty at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 9. Tickets are $18.50 per person or $15 for children and seniors. The running time is two hours and forty minutes, presented in two acts. The production is not rated for content, and is sung in German with English subtitles. This is part of the Liberty Theater’s “Event Cinema” series, which includes ballets and operas, concerts, classic movies, plays, and documentary films. Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman,” is the next opera in this series and will be shown at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12. Wine and beer is available to purchase in the lobby during all showings.
