Synopsis

An encore performance of Mozart's The Magic Flute will be shown in select cinemas nationwide on Saturday, December 7. Julie Taymor's kaleidoscopic production returns to select cinemas this holiday season in an encore presentation of the company's first-ever Live in HD transmission. James Levine conducts a winning ensemble that includes tenor Matthew Polenzani, baritone Nathan Gunn, and bass Rene Pape in this abridged, English-language version of Mozart's classic fable.

The sets and production design were amazing. I agree the abridged version caught me by surprise but enjoyed it anyway without all the behind the scenes moments.

I missed seeing the whole production: views of the audience as people find their seats, the conductor entering the pit, the host introducing the production and conducting interviews during the intermissions, etc. The Fathom Events description does say it is "abridged", but I understood that to mean the story itself was shortened, not the whole experience. A better word for this might have been "truncated".
