Nebraska Wesleyan to Perform Mozart's "The Magic Flute"

Nebraska Wesleyan University’s music students will perform Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s last opera, “The Magic Flute”.

Performances are scheduled for Friday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 1 at 3 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students. Tickets will be available at the door. The production is free for NWU employees and students.

In “The Magic Flute,” young Prince Tamino must learn to tell good from evil with the help of his bird-brained sidekick Papageno before he can rescue the lovely Pamina and restore light to the world. The production combines elements of magic, adventure, comedy and drama to deliver the life-affirming message that love conquers all.

“The Magic Flute” is being directed by Dawn Pawlewski-Krogh.


I caught Friday's performance of The Magic Flute and was blown away! The fact that I can ride my bicycle five minutes from my home and catch a first-rate performance of a Mozart opera totally blows my mind! I'm just an ordinary guy who plays a little classical guitar recrationally, but from what I could tell, this production is top of the pops! The Wesleyan kids totally know what they're doing! Well done!

I'll be back for the Sunday matinee.
