 The Bagaduce Music Lending Library and Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library will present a preview of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozartís opera, Die Zauberflote, on Friday, October 13th at 1:00 PM at the Blue Hill Public Library. A live performance of the opera will be simulcast at the Grand in Ellsworth the following day, Saturday, October 14th, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

According to the Met website, ďMusic Director Emeritus James Levine conducts the full-length German version of Mozartís magical fable, seen in Julie Taymorís spectacular production, which captures both the operaís earthy comedy and its noble mysticism.Ē

Local opera enthusiasts Linda Lesko and David Porter will summarize the plot, introduce the music and offer some ideas of special ways to enjoy the Saturday simulcast. All are welcome, no previous opera knowledge is needed, and admission is free. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
