In anticipation of the Phoenix production of “The Magic Flute,” Arizona Opera and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix have partnered to bring families a fun, interactive series of programs to discover Mozart’s magical opera.

Members of Arizona Opera will visit the museum with special demonstrations and programs for kids to learn more about this opera. The schedule includes:

  • Mozart Story Time, 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 6. Actor/singer Josh Borths presents The Magic Flute Reader’s Theater, a 30-minute version of the adventures of Papageno and Tamino, the heroes of Mozart’s “Magic Flute.”
  • Instant Opera, 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11. Kids join Arizona Opera’s teaching artists to create their own opera. This fun, interactive program brings the magic of opera to life as the kids develop their own adventurous story and perform their mini-opera, all in a 45-minute program.

As part of the partnership, The Children’s Museum of Phoenix will offer $2 off admission for these days for families wishing to attend the educational programs. Following the programs, families can visit the museum and make it a special day. Visit to print coupon and present at the door to receive $2 off admission.

Arizona Opera also offers a special Magic Flute Ticket Package, which includes 50 percent off tickets for kids/students (under 18 years), dinner at Cibo Urban Pizzeria, a commemorative Magic Flute poster and a free download of The Magic Flute Readers Theater, as performed by students from the Arizona School for the Arts.
