Overview

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. 

Please note that children under the age of 12, for whom there is not yet an available vaccine, are not currently permitted to enter the Met. As soon as they become eligible to receive a vaccine, hopefully by later this fall, fully vaccinated children will of course be welcomed. Please also note that, in any case, the 2021–22 ticket policy includes flexible exchanges for all ticket buyers. If you are unable to attend a performance for any reason, you will be eligible for a complimentary exchange for a future performance. Learn more
