Share a little magic with us this summer!

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! Opera Wilmington is very excited to present this enduring work to coastal Carolina audiences July 22, 24, 29 and 31 in UNCW’s Mainstage Theatre. Performances on Fridays (July 22 and 29) begin at 7 p.m. Performances on Sundays (July 24 and 31) begin at 3 p.m.

The opera, which Mozart wrote as a “singspiel” (German light opera with spoken dialogue) will be sung in German, with English dialogue. Our cast includes OW favorites John Dooley, Shannon Kessler Dooley and Beth Stovall. We’ll also introduce some thrilling new artists to our audiences!

Mozart’s popular favorite has endured for 230 years, enchanting audiences of all ages.
