Happy Thursday MMT Fam! We’re giving away two pair of passes to The Met: Live in HD 2nd performance of the season, DIE ZAUBERFLOTE (“The Magic Flute”), scheduled for this Saturday, October 14.
Met Music Director Emeritus James Levine conducts Tony Award winner Julie Taymor’s in the production of Mozart’s masterpiece, with Golda Schultz making her Met debut as Pamina, Kathryn Lewek as the Queen of the Night, Charles Castronovo as the fairy tale prince Tamino, Markus Werba as the bird-catching Papageno, Christian Van Horn as Sprecher, and René Pape as Sarastro.
The holiday presentation of The Magic Flute, an abridged staging sung in English for families, was the first Live in HD performance to be transmitted in 2006 – MMT subscribers had an opportunity to watch the live 2015 performance – and this is the first time the full-length German opera will be seen in the series.
To put your name in the hat, you must be signed up to this website and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Flute” and your full name and address in the body. Two winners will be selected and notified on this evening.
