The Pittsburg State University Opera Workshop, in conjunction with the PSU Department of Music, will perform Mozart's "The Magic Flute" at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 18 and at 3 p.m. on Nov. 20 in Pittsburg's Memorial Auditorium. Both performances will be accompanied by the Southeast Kansas Symphony under the direction of Dr. Selim Giray.
"The Magic Flute," one of Mozart's best known works, premiered in Vienna in 1791. It was an instant success and continues to be a favorite of opera lovers to this day. It is believed to be the most frequently performed opera in the world.
The PSU Opera Workshop is directed by Patrick Howle. Howle received a bachelor of music degree in vocal performance from East Carolina University and a master of music degree in vocal performance and literature from the Eastman School of Music. Howle has performed in more than 25 productions with the Ohio Light Opera and is a winner of the Orpheus National Vocal Competition.
Tickets for the performance are $10 for adults, $5 dollars for seniors and students under 17, and $5 for groups of 10 or more. PSU students are admitted free with their student ID. Tickets may be purchased through the PSU Ticket Office or at Memorial Auditorium on the day of the performance.
