Landmark Opera presents ‘The Magic Flute’

Press release

News release 

Landmark Opera is scheduled to present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” and the tale of good versus evil at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 9, at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church. 

The first act is concerned with the quest of Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno for Pamina, the lovely daughter of the Queen of the Night. Pamina has been stolen by Sarastro, high priest of Isis and Osiris. Tamino finally discovers that Sarastro has abducted her for her own good, to keep her away from the evil influence of her mother. By the aid of a magic flute and a set of magic bells, Tamino, Pamina and Papageno are momentarily brought together. 

The second act is concerned with the initiation of Tamino and Papageno into the mysteries of Isis and Osiris, Tamino being actuated by a love of wisdom, Papageno merely by a desire for a wife, for his long-wished-for Papagena. The priests tell the two young men that during their probation they must not talk to any women. Pamina misunderstands Tamino’s silence, and is broken-hearted. Papageno repeatedly talks when he is not supposed to, and almost loses his Papagena. Will the magic flute and bells solve all difficulties? Will the boys find their true loves?
