Mozart’s Magical Castle at Casa Loma
This holiday season, Casa Loma and Opera Atelier will partner to create Mozart’s Magical Castle, a month-long installation which will bring Toronto’s castle to life with the sights and sounds of Mozart’s beloved opera The Magic Flute.
This unique interactive installation will feature a variety of performances, educational workshops, and creative activities that will expose participants of all ages to the music, dance and story of Mozart’s most famous opera in the magical environment of Casa Loma.
Artists from Opera Atelier’s production will be on-site to perform excerpts from The Magic Flute, a team of arts educators will help participants connect with the artist inside them, and activities such as costumed characters and a scavenger hunt will ensure that all Casa Loma patrons will get to participate in the fun.
PERFORMANCES (Great Hall)
Performances will span three disciplines: Dance, Music and Drama. Dance performances will feature two Opera Atelier dancers performing choreography from The Magic Flute. Music performances will feature Opera Atelier principles singing some of The Magic Flute’s famous arias. Drama performances will feature costumed arts-educators leading the audience through an abridged version of the opera’s story.
Dates: December 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 15, 16, 18, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30, 2012
