Isango Ensemble
The Magic Flute

 

“…this is also a Magic Flute of defiance, of raised fists, of the celebration of freedom and equality that were Mozart’s ideals and are the often overlooked essence of the opera.” (Los Angeles Times)

Isango Ensemble is a South African theater company that draws its artists from the townships surrounding Cape Town. The company reimagines classics from the Western theater canon while finding new context for the stories within a South African township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation and a “joyful fusion of two cultures.” (Boston Globe) For their UMS debut, they present three performances of The Magic Flute, which features Mozart’s score transcribed for an orchestra of marimbas.

Join a post-performance artist Q&A immediately following the Wednesday, October 16 performance.
