Share a little magic with us this NEXT summer! (Unfortunately, our “magic” could not overcome the need for caution this summer in the face of the COVID-19 virus)

Star-crossed lovers, the queen of mean, a mysterious magus and two quirky feathered friends are just a few of the characters you’ll meet in Mozart’s hugely popular opera The Magic Flute, coming to a stage near you in July 2021! Opera Wilmington is very excited to present this enduring work to coastal Carolina audiences July 23, 25, 30 and August 1, 2021 in UNCW’s Mainstage Theatre. 

The opera, which Mozart wrote as a “singspiel” (German light opera with spoken dialogue) will be sung in English. Our cast includes OW favorites John Dooley and Shannon Kessler Dooley. Check back here for complete cast information and ticket purchasing information.

Mozart’s popular favorite has endured for 229 years, so we’re sure it will maintain its star qualities and be just as delightful next July.
