Lionel Hampton School of Music Presents “The Magic Flute”
March 24, 2022
MOSCOW, Idaho — March 24, 2022 — The University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music presents “The Magic Flute,” April 1 and 3 at the Administration Building Auditorium on the U of I campus.
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “The Magic Flute” is a fantastical tale of two young lovers whose journey in the world brings them together with help of friends and a magic flute.
“It was the musical theatre of its day and is still so relevant for our times,” said Lynette Pfund, director of the opera and voice instructor at LHSOM.
“It’s a journey of discovery, a quest that reflects where our students are in their lives right now, trying to find their place in the world,” Pfund said. “The story is compelling and full of humanity. It asks big questions and there are so many loveable characters. We even love the villains. Mozart gives them all such beautiful music.”
The production features 33 university students, one faculty member, several community volunteers, the University Orchestra, and two theatre students working behind the scenes with costumes and set design to make the magic happen for the production.
“Opera gives us the ability to come together as a school of music and unify forces,” said LHSOM Associate Professor of Voice Christopher Pfund, producer and conductor of “The Magic Flute.” “Every spring, our students look forward to this opportunity because we love being together and making music,” he said.
