The Manga Flute, West Edge Opera

West Edge Opera

March 4 - 11

The Manga FluteManga meets Mozart in this colorful production. The imaginative David Scott Marley has reinterpreted Mozart’s beloved Magic Flute through the lens of a manga comic book. The plot couldn’t be more appropriate: “A young prince, lost in a world where magical monsters menace and the powers of night and day wrestle for domination, strikes out to save a princess.” Families will appreciate the short running time of two hours, plus the work is sung in English, with Eugene Brancoveanu starring as Papageno.

She earned a DMA in flute performance from SUNY, Stony Brook, and is the mother of two musical kids. Lisa was the Content Manager for the Kids and Families section of San Francisco Classical Voice during 2011.
