With its lush costumes and colorful backdrops, The Magic Flute at The Greene Space is the perfect way to introduce children to Mozart and opera.
Watch an encore video stream as we revisit WQXR’s 2013 presentation of a special family performance of the beloved class, featuring Amore Opera. Designed especially for children ages 4-12, the fantastical fairy-tale opera about bird catchers, princes and enchanted instruments is sung in an English translation with narration set to piano. The event was hosted by Manoush Zomorodi.
Watch a video stream on this page at 10am ET.
