On Friday, May 11 at the beautiful Art-Deco Scottish Rite Temple, Orchestra Miami put on Mozart’s “Masonic” Opera, The Magic Flute, enhanced by the spectacular setting and sung in a new English translation.
In this enchanted journey the hero Tamino treads the path to enlightenment, ultimately guided by his beloved Pamina.The forces of evil were at hand in the guise of the Queen and her servant, Monostotos. They were countered by the benevolent Priest Sarastro, the charming bird-catcher Papageno, three ladies, a host of animals, an enchanted flute and a wild snake-monster.
Dinner for FANS and guests was enjoyed before the theater at Garcia’s Seafood Grille on North River Drive along the Miami River, a short walk away from the event.
Hosted by Mary Brenner and Renee Lieberman, this Cultural Camaraderie evening was indeed a magical treat for FANS.
