Mozart's two-act opera "The Magic Flute" starts tomorrow
**************************************************

     One of Mozart's beloved and most popular operas, "The Magic Flute", will be staged in Hong Kong from tomorrow to next Monday (November 5-9). An overwhelming response for bookings means there are only limited tickets.

     "The Magic Flute" has been enchanting audiences worldwide for more than two centuries – from the fairy-tale love story of Prince Tamino and Pamina, to the solemn music of Sarastro, and the brilliant coloratura aria of the Queen of the Night, offering magical spectacle and dazzling vocal display.

     The main story line of "The Magic Flute" tells how Prince Tamino, wishing to win the hand of Pamina, undergoes various ordeals, through which he gains a better understanding of the world. Not merely a love story, it also mingles the Masonic ideals of enlightenment and universal brotherhood with Viennese comedy in a seminal German opera.
   
     "The Magic Flute" is a new production co-produced by Opera Hong Kong, the National Centre for the Performing Arts and Den Norske Opera & Ballett, with artistic personnel from all over the world, including the world-renowned Hong Kong tenor Warren Mok, together with Chen Ping and Per Larsen as producers, and the highly regarded director Paul Curran.

     Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and Opera Hong Kong, "The Magic Flute", sung in German with Chinese and English surtitles, will be staged at 7:30pm, November 5-9, at the Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre. "The Magic Flute" is one of the programmes commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

     Tickets ranging from $150 to $900 are now available at URBTIX outlets. Senior citizens aged 60 or above, people with disabilities, full-time students and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) recipients may have 50% off (limited quotas for students and CSSA recipients on a first-come, first-served basis). A maximum discount of 15% is offered for group booking. Please check the promotional leaflet for details.
