Tamino vs. Sarastro

This weekend UNM Opera Studio takes to the boards of Keller Hall for four performances of Wolfie’s ironically mystical Enlightenment-era opera The Magic Flute. The campus opera division is world-class; late Santa Fe Opera giant John O. Crosby often held SFO auditions on campus. The retirement of professorial diva Marilyn Tyler hasn’t slowed things down either.

Leslie Umphrey and Bradley Ellingboe, successors to the vibrant vocal program, direct and perform as the villainous Sarastro respectively. Tenor Seth Hartwell takes on the lead role of Tamino, the dude who sings the haunting aria, “Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön” ("This image is enchantingly lovely"). Jorge Perez-Gomez guides the University Orchestra through these complex and classical proceedings wherein a wandering prince falls in love with the Queen of the Night's daughter. The curtain rises tomorrow through Saturday (Feb. 20-22) at 7:30pm with a Sunday (Feb. 23) matinee at 2pm. Tickets range from $6 to $10.
