Intense, Great staging, Entertaining, Great singing, Fabulous puppets

See it if you love The Magic Flute. This is a extraordinary whimsical new staging using puppets to extend the theatricality of the production.

Don't see it if you feel stressing production elements distracts from the singing even though the singing in this production is spectacular.

Great set design, Great singing, Delightful, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if you like classic operas, you are introducing kids to opera, you like shorter MET productions.

Don't see it if you like opera in its original language, you want to see something more modern, you get hung up on plot holes.

Great singing, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if you haven't seen many opera shows before and want to see one to see what it's like; you know the storyline

Don't see it if you know you don't like opera music and have troubles making out the words sung in opera songs.

The New York Times
December 12th, 2021
For a previous production

"The performance boasted a winning cast and glowing playing from the orchestra, led with elegance and insight by Jane Glover. I’ve long been in the minority in finding Taymor’s stylized, puppet-filled staging overly busy — too inventive for its own good. But the audience applauded each scenic touch and stage trick, including some children near me, though there seemed not that many of them in attendance overall."
