‘The Magic Flute’ at Opera Grand Rapids
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.–Opera Grand Rapids’ humorous production The Magic Flute is coming to DeVos Performance Hall this weekend Friday, October 26 & Saturday, October 27, is a shining introduction to opera for all ages.

Containing some of the most spirited and beautiful music of all time,The Magic Flute will be sung in English so that everyone present can follow the story.
Opera Grand Rapids’ Artistic Director, Maestro James Meena, leads the Opera Grand Rapids Chorus and Grand Rapids Symphony in this light-hearted, production directed by internationally acclaimed stage-director, James Marvel, with projected backgrounds by Michael Baumgarten.
