DMMO: The Magic Flute
PRESENTED BY THE DES MOINES METRO OPERA
Prepare to be astonished as Mozart meets the movies in this inventive and dazzling celebration of true love conquering all. This charming interpretation of Mozart’s most famous opera puts the singers in front of a huge screen, interacting in real time with animations projected all around them, creating the impression that gigantic comic strip collages are coming to life right before your eyes! The fable centers around noble Prince Tamino and bird catcher Papageno’s quest to rescue Pamina, the Queen of the Night’s daughter. During their journey the two are tested as they overcome evil to discover the truth.
"The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we've ever documented our existence, it's all through an art form."
