*South African Theatre comes to America! The Broad Stage hosts the internationally acclaimed Isango Ensemble to perform Mozart’s classic, “The Magic Flute” for six performances.

The story is basically about Tamino and Pamina – two young people who fall in love with each other based on being shown each others’ photographs, then go through a series of adventurous mishaps before they meet and can be together. Pamina is the daughter of the Queen of the Night and she was kidnapped by an evil man. Tamino is a traveler who vows to find her. Along the way he is met by three ladies who continuously compete with each other as they vie for his attention; a hilarious “bird-catcher,” spirits, and an assortment of other characters – all of whom lend themselves to the play’s chaos and order.

Final performance 4p.m. on Sunday, October 12
