Washington National Opera’s The Magic Flute is this year’s free opera simulcast at Nationals Park, and will take place on the opera’s opening night, Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. Gates will open at 5 p.m. for “pregame” activities for the entire family. The Magic Flute, which will be performed in English in a new eye-popping production featuring sets and costumes by Japanese-American artist Jun Kaneko, will be broadcast live from the Kennedy Center Opera House to the high-definition screen at the ballpark at 7 p.m. The Magic Flute is a delightful fairy tale, a fantastic adventure filled with danger and temptation, and a profound reflection on spiritual enlightenment.
