Who wouldn’t want to be a princess? Who father throws a party in which a play is staged just for her? And then become a part of that play, and weave her way through an enormous hedge-maze and fog on-stage until she finds her one-true-love and prince, Tamino?
This production of the Magic Flute at Opera Philadelphia is my favorite. I may be biased because of the pink dress.
But I also might be biased because Philadelphia is a great house and city to sing in. The company works so smoothly, thanks to a fantastic staff. The opera house and the schools (including Curtis) are incredibly supportive of each other, and members from each always attend performances. And the musical staff always, always delivers excellence. I love working, singing, and being in Philly.
