The Magic Flute

The New York Metropolitan Opera’s The Magic Flute is back — on screen, at least. This is an abridged, English-language version of Mozart’s masterpiece put together especially for family audiences, with Julia Taymor (of The Lion King fame) in the director’s chair. The bright, colorful production swoops audiences into a world of giant birds, dancing bears and, of course, magic flutes that can change men’s hearts. Today’s screening is a rebroadcast of a 2006 performance, the first in the popular The Met: Live series. 7 p.m. Various theaters including Houston Marq*E Stadium 22 plus IMAX, 7600 Katy Freeway.

Wed., Aug. 5, 7 p.m., 2009
