Mozart represents all things youthful and bright with his opera Magic Flute, creating a world of enchantment and mystery that has charmed operagoers. In advance of Seattle Opera’s Magic Flute, opening May 6, violinist Erica Miner mines the depths of Mozart’s genius to explore the reasons for the work’s popularity. With musical excerpts and artistic images from the Magic Flute productions of Marc Chagall and Julie Taymor, she examines how Mozart transformed this heroic journey of a prince and his beloved princess into one of the world’s most treasured musical tales. Erica Miner is a former Metropolitan Opera Orchestra violinist, now an award-winning author, screenwriter, arts writer and lecturer. She studied violin at Boston University where she received her MusB, New England Conservatory of Music, and Tanglewood Music Center. Erica was a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 21 years. She is an active contributor to arts websites and magazines. 2 sessions.
