The Met Opera's music director emeritus, James Levine, conducts Tony Award winner Julie Taymor's production of Mozart's masterpiece Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute).

Golda Schultz makes her Met debut as Pamina with Kathryn Lewek as the Queen of the Night, Charles Castronovo as the fairy tale prince Tamino, Markus Werba as the bird-catching Papageno, Christian Van Horn as Sprecher, and Rene Pape as Sarastro.
