Announcing auditions for Quincy Music Theater’s production of W.A. Mozart’s “The Magic Flute.” The piece will be sung in English with dialogue and performs July 14th through the 23rd. “The Magic Flute” is an imaginative story about the battles between feminine and masculine and each side’s quest to influence the dawning of a new age of humanity. The Queen of the Night, who is the goddess of the moon, wishes to hold power over her surrogate daughter, Pamina, so that her influence will reign in the new age. Meanwhile, Sarastro who holds the power of the sun, seeks to allow Pamina and a foreigner Tamino to find their way to truth in the new age. With the help of the birdman Papageno, some friendly sprites, and som…e magical instruments, Tamino and Pamina travel through this fantastic land in search of each other and their true selves.
The auditions will be held on Sunday, April 23rd at 7:30pm in Quincy at the Leaf Theater and Monday, April 24th at 7:00pm in Tallahassee in the Housewright Building of FSU campus, room 088. Please prepare a music selection of about 1 minute in length, an aria, art song or other musical number.
