The classic children’s tale, the “Prince and the Magic Flute,” comes to the stage at Puppetworks now through March 24, with special performances on Feb. 18 and 19.
The marionette production, adapted by director Nicolas Coppola, features simple songs taken from the Mozart score. The story involves the brave prince and the bird catcher, and their attempt to rescue the fair maiden princess from the Palace of the Sun with the help of a magic flute and magic bells.
Highlights include “The Creatures of the Night,” “The Prince’s Tests of Water,” “Fire and Silence,” and the “Destruction of the Evil Queen of the Night.”
Tickets are $8 for children, and $9 for adults. Group rates are available. Performances are held each Saturday and Sunday, through March 24, at 12:30 and 2:30 pm.
