The Magic Flute
The New York Metropolitan Operas The Magic Flute is back on screen, at least. This is an abridged, English-language version of Mozarts masterpiece put together especially for family audiences, with Julia Taymor (of The Lion King fame) in the directors chair. The bright, colorful production swoops audiences into a world of giant birds, dancing bears and, of course, magic flutes that can change mens hearts. Todays 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.
