Don't forget, our Opera will be performing Mozart's The Magic Flute tomorrow, April 28, at 7:00 pm in the Singleton Center for the Performing Arts!

In honor of Professor Melanie Day's upcoming retirement and dedicated tenure to the Opera, the performance will be free to attend!

We hope you’ll mark your calendars, because the award-winning VCU Opera, together with the VCU Symphony, will present this classic fairy-tale opera on FRIDAY, APRIL 28 at 7 pm and SUNDAY, APRIL 30 at 4 pm. Due to the pandemic, VCU Music has been offering all departmental ensemble concerts for FREE with OPEN SEATING----so there is NO need for TICKETS! Just come out and let us transport you far away from your everyday worries for two hours!

One of the greatest operas ever written, Mozart's timeless classic "The Magic Flute" concerns the search for truth and reason, love and enlightenment. As an allegory or fairy tale, this thoroughly delightful opera follows the adventures of Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno on their quest to rescue Pamina. With an intriguing mixture of ancient Egypt combined with symbolism from Freemasonry, Mozart’s masterpiece thrills us with childlike simplicity, emotional complexity, dark foreboding and hilarious comedy! We promise to take you on a wonderful journey as you experience the talents of our terrific music students and some VCU Music alumni as well.

Best wishes,
Melanie
Director, VCU Opera
