World Stage Production
She She Pop (Germany)
Performed in German with English surtitles
Mirroring the story of King Lear and his daughters, She She Pop members take to the stage with their own aging fathers to enumerate their inheritances and negotiate how power, money, memory and love are passed along across the generations. With the drive of a game show, this heart wrenching and humourous work strives to find the intersections of responsibility and respect between parents and children. She She Pop, based in Berlin and Hamburg, is one of Germany’s most important performance collectives.

Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an enchanting romp through a fairly-tale land in which dragons and spirits roam
and perseverance is rewarded by true love. A magical tale that delights audiences of all ages, The Magic
Flute is a wonderful adventure for the whole family.
One of the most-performed operas worldwide, The Magic Flute is perhaps Mozart’s greatest popular
success. It tells the tale of a prince, Tamino, who is sent by The Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter
Pamina from her nemesis Sarastro. Accompanied by the endearingly incorrigible Papageno and with the aid
of a magic flute, the besotted Tamino ventures into the temple and quickly finds that all is not as it seems. TICKET PRICES: $35 – $155.
