The Met’s abridged, English-language version of Mozart’s magical fairy tale is a classic holiday treat for audiences of all ages. A cast of standouts comes together to bring the charming story and enchanting music to life, led by tenor Matthew Polenzani as the courageous Tamino and soprano Hera Hysesang Park as the virtuous Pamina. Rolando Villazón makes an exciting role debut as the lovable lout Papageno, alongside Kathryn Lewek as the fearsome Queen of the Night and Morris Robinson as her nemesis, the wise Sarastro. Jane Glover conducts.
Sung in English with Met Titles in English, German, Spanish and Italian.
