Opera finally comes to Festival of the Arts Boca!

Come see for yourself why Mozart’s timeless masterpiece of high comedy and serious drama is the second-most performed opera in the world!  A celebration of true love conquering all, The Magic Flute transports us into an enchanted world where good faces the forces of darkness. Semi-staged in a shortened English-language version under the baton of Constantine Kitsopoulos, a winning ensemble cast – including several singers from South Florid – brings fresh life to Mozart’s timeless fairy tale.
