7:15 pm Feature Film: The Magic Flute
The Magic Flute
This is not your Grandparent’s opera by Mozart! The title may sound familiar but that’s where the comparison ends. Take Mozart’s classic opera, mix in contemporary Harry Potter-esque elements, develop a budding love story between two time dimensions and you might be close to describing the narrative of this Magic Flute. Music in both worlds carries the day while Tim/Tamino’s epic quest to save a love in both worlds is put to the test.
