Die Zauberflöte

Buy Tickets

The final new production of the 2022–23 season was an ingenious and enchanting take on Die Zauberflöte from British director Simon McBurney. With its dazzling combination of projections, puppetry, and special effects—including live video and Foley artists—the staging matched the musical wizardry of Mozart’s timeless fable. Maestro Nathalie Stutzmann takes the podium for this performance from the company’s Live in HD series, with tenor Lawrence Brownlee and soprano Erin Morley starring as the noble lovers Pamina and Tamino. In his debut season, baritone Thomas Oliemans is the hapless yet utterly lovable bird catcher Papageno, with bass Stephen Milling as Sarastro and Kathryn Lewek delivering a hair-raising portrayal as the Queen of the Night—a role that she has sung more than any other soprano in Met history.
