POP returns to the comfortable 350 seat El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood with another crazy spin on a Mozart classic. Unlike any Magic Flute you've ever seen, this one is going to be “super”. Papageno, Tamino, and the gang are transported to the land of 90s video games with a new English libretto by Josh Shaw and Scott Levin. With two Sunday matinees and a kid friendly setting, this a perfect opera to bring the entire family to see.

"Conductor Edward Benyas led the twenty-one piece orchestra in a fine reading of Mozart's score along with a few interpolations of the composer's divertimento music that covered some scene changes. The video game FLUTE is a great change of pace and lots of fun for those who love opera with a flair."
