Fresco Opera presents the WORLD PREMIERE of their original prequel to Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” – THE QUEEN OF THE NIGHT
A new production from the ground up, with new music, new story, and new songs.
The Queen of the Night lives in the Realm of Night, a place of perpetual darkness. Sarastro, a sorcerer priest from the Realm of Day, enters her world and they fall in love. Their children, Papageno, Pamina, and The Three Ladies, are born from the shadows. They are stalked by Apophis the Serpent, an ancient denizen of the night who hates Day, and is jealous of the QUEENs feelings for Sarastro, and wants to destroy him. Apophis persuades a young prince from the borderlands named TAMINO to enter the Realm of Night on the promise of a reward if he will destroy Sarastro. Night and Day are at odds with each other and a storm of black magic awaits anyone that gets in the way of the Queen’s happiness
