Joe Barlow dropped in on Ballet Austin to get a sneak peak at the Magic Flute. Originally an opera by Mozart, it is a classic love tale with lot’s of jokes along the way. The Magic Flute is about a guy who falls in love with a picture of a woman he finds in a locket. In order to find the woman he enlists the help of a magic flute, along with a friend. It’s a play that involves shadow puppets, which requires the performers to deal with a lot of different angles. The Austin Symphony Orchestra provides a re-imagining of the score throughout the play.
