The Metropolitan Opera is set to celebrate the holiday season with its family version of Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” for nine performances.

Kathryn Lewek sings her iconic Queen of the Night, with Morris Robinson as Sarastro, Patrick Carfizzi as Speaker and Rodell Rosel as Monostatos.

For the performance on January 1, 2022, Eric Ferring makes his Met debut as Tamino and Will Liverman sings Papageno. Peixin Chen sings the role of Sarastro for performances on January 1 and 5, 2022.
