Now a Met holiday classic, the abridged English-language version of Mozart's enchanting fairy tale features a cast of young stars. Tenor Charles Castronovo is the heroic prince Tamino, who follows a noble quest to rescue his beloved, the warm-hearted Pamina—sung here by soprano Hanna-Elisabeth Müller. Audience favorite Nathan Gunn offers a hilarious portrayal of the bird catcher Papageno, with Tobias Kehrer, as the wise Sarastro, and Kathryn Lewek, who delivers a hair-raising performance as the vindictive Queen of the Night, representing opposite sides of the moral spectrum. In his debut run, Evan Rogister conducts the Met Orchestra and Chorus in Mozart’s whimsical and heartwarming comic adventure.
