Opera Theatre of Montclair presents its family-favorite shortened version of Mozart's THE MAGIC FLUTE at the renowned Van Vleck House & Gardens on Thursday, July 27, 2017, 7 PM. Child volunteers from the audience will take up the "roles" of dragons, forest animals, spirits, The Second Lady and baby birds. It will be presented on the rear patio and lawn of this beautiful historic estate.  Bring your picnic basket and blanket/lawn chair, and be sure to arrive early to tour around the exquisite gardens. This fun interactive show is presented, in part, by a grant from The Montclair Foundation. RAIN OR SHINE! In the event of rain, the show will be brought inside the mansion where the audience will "follow" the cast around - a unique operatic experience either way! Tickets are available through Eventbrite below or at the door.
