Hawaii Opera Theatre's educational touring adaptation of Mozart's The Magic Flute opens HPR’s 2016 Atherton Summer Season. Performed by a small cast from HOT’s Mae Z. Orvis Opera Studio, the special youth-friendly matinee features Leslie Goldman McInerny (as The Queen of the Night, Pamina, and Papagena), Sarah Lambert Connelly (as Papageno), and Andrew Lee (as Prince Tamino and Sarastro). The hour-long show, originally created for grades K – 8, offers opportunities for adventurous audience members of all ages to play a four-headed dragon and even sing a chorus.
