A production of The Magic Flute, a collaboration between the Acadiana Symphony and the UL Lafayette College of the Arts, will take place April 6, 7 and 8 at 7 p.m. and April 9 at 3 p.m. in Angelle Hall Auditorium on the UL Lafayette campus.

The Magic Flute centers around a young Prince, Tamino, who is searching for wisdom and a bride. He finds her in Pamina, the daughter of the wicked Queen of the Night. The plot deals with the age-old story of good versus evil and the class structure in which we still live.

The production will feature five professional singers along with vocal students from the School of Music. Singers from the Lafayette community will also participate. The University Chorale and University Chorus will serve as the chorus. Production values are being contributed from the Performing Arts Department in the form of choreography by Kenneth Jenkins and stage design by Todd Pickett. The Visual Arts Department is creating original artwork by Brian Kelly and Chryl Savoy to frame the stage, and the School of Music is providing lighting design by Mary Ivory Smith and the singers.

The production is being directed by Shawn Roy and conducted by Mariusz Smolij. This production will be a unique presentation of the opera in that it is a concert performance with staging, costuming, lighting, dance and narration by Susan Nicassio.

Tickets may be purchased at the Heymann Center for the Performing Arts or at the door on the day of the performance. Call 482-6016 or 232-4277 for more info.
