This abridged English-language version of Mozart’s immortal opera, seen at the Met as the annual holiday presentation for families, is conducted by renowned Mozartian Jane Glover. Alek Shrader stars as Tamino, the young prince who finds himself on a quest to rescue and win the beautiful Pamina, sung by Heidi Stober. Nathan Gunn is Tamino’s companion, the birdcatcher Papageno, and Eric Owens sings Sarastro, the man who holds Pamina captive—to protect her from her mother, the evil Queen of the Night, sung by Kathryn Lewek.
