REF NO.: 213

SUBJECT: Memorial staging full-scale opera production

DATE: Jan. 27

Memorial’s School of Music invites opera lovers to experience Mozart’s TheMagic Flute in a fully-staged performance of one of the German composer’s most beloved works in the operatic repertoire.
The production has been cast almost entirely with voice majors currently studying at the School of Music and will be accompanied by the MUN Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Vernon Regehr.
The title role, Prince Tamino, will be played by School of Music graduate and former student of the New England Conservatory Jonathan Reed. Peter Halley will play Monostatos, and Michael Power will play the Priest. Three children’s roles – who act as guides to the heroes on their quest –were selected from the St. John’s-based Shallaway youth choir.
Taking place at the Reid Theatre, Arts and Administration Building on Feb. 18 and 19, tickets are available through the Holy Heart Theatre box office at 709-579-4424.
