In Mozart's comic opera The Magic Flute, young Prince Tamino and Princess Pamina are lovers who discover that a flute with magic powers will help them fight evil forces that might break them apart.
Ancient Egypt: Tamino, chased by a snake, falls unconscious. Three Ladies kill the snake and leave to tell the Queen of Night what has happened. As Tamino awakes, Papageno appears, dressed as a bird, and claims he killed the serpent. The Three Ladies hear his lie and padlock his mouth. They give Tamino a portrait of Pamina, the Queen's daughter, and he falls in love with her. The Queen agrees to their marriage if he rescues Pamina who is a prisoner of Sarastro. The Ladies give Tamino a magic flute and Papageno a set of magic bells to aid them in their mission. Three Boys show them the way. Papageno saves Pamina from being tormented by Monastatos and assures her that rescue is at hand. Tamino plays his flute and wild animals come and listen to him, but he hears Papageno's bells and goes to find him. Papageno rescues Pamina and brings her to join Tamino. They go to meet Sarastro, who tells them they must go through several ordeals before being worthy to join the Temple. Monastatos attempts to seduce Pamina. She is saved by the Queen, who gives her daughter a dagger to kill Sarastro. Two Armed Men lead Tamino in. He is joined by Pamina to go through his trials by fire and water. Meantime Papageno meets an old crone who turns out to be the beautiful Papagena who will be his bride. Having come through their trials, Pamina and Tamino are united in Sarastro's presence.
Classic operetta, comedic interludes and a timeless setting, the story takes place aboard the British ship HMS Pinafore during the reign of Queen Victoria in England. Imbued with mirth and silliness, the opera's humour focuses on love between members of different social classes and lampoons the British class system in general. Pinafore also pokes good-natured fun at patriotism, party politics, the Royal Navy, and the rise of unqualified people to positions of authority. Has life really changed so much?? Modern adaptions of this timeless classic abound and the Saskatoon Summer Players have their own “personal” rendition ready to serve up to Saskatoon audiences. Under the skillful pen of local playright Ian Nelson, few of our more illustrious national figures, current political situations or local customs go unscathed. Indeed, it will be an unrivaled commentary on social conventions as they exist in Canada.
This production to be staged by the Saskatoon Summer Players will celebrate 50 years of musical theatre by the organization in the city. Directed by Meghan McDonald & Bobby Williston, with musical director Michael Harris and produced by Peter England, it promises to be a wonderful family presentation and a perfect way to begin the long summer holiday season!
