Pre-Concert Talks @7pm at Ruth Taylor Recital Hall
SOLI & Opera San Antonio present The Land of the Magic Flute. Part of the San Antonio Symphony’s month-long festival celebrating the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, The Land of the Magic Flute is an animated graphic novel, created by film director and animator, Fons Schiedon, in collaboration with composer Phillippe Lambert. This modern telling of the story from one of Mozart’s most celebrated operas, The Magic Flute, combines contemporary drawings and animation with original music inspired by thematic materials from Mozart’s own score. Lambert and Schiedon will LIVE-MIX the film and the incidental music, while SOLI will arrange and perform the seven, key Mozart arias featured in the graphic novel, with talented singers in beautiful costumes from OPERA San Antonio. This concert will truly be a unique experience for San Antonio audiences.
