Opera Cheat Sheet: The Magic Flute

In this week’s Opera Cheat Sheet, Classical 91.7’s program director St.John Flynn and opera expert Eric Skelly take a light-hearted look at Mozart's beloved "Singspiel," The Magic Flute, an allegory of the education of humankind progressing from chaos to rational enlightenment to make "the Earth a heavenly kingdom, and mortals like the gods."  You can hear the San Francisco Opera production of The Magic Flute Saturday at noon on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
