Ok, so i was reading an article today that mentioned that Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” is being developed into a movie — with a $20 million budget. Filming starts this spring, but is being recorded sometime this fall.
I really enjoyed The Magic Flute, despite the fact that when I saw it I was considerably ill — fever, etc. I actually saw it the afternoon of the Super Bowl when the whole Janet Jackson/breast fiasco occured. I guess it was my way of balancing culture.
Or something.
But either way, I think it has the potential to be really really good. The Queen of the Night aria was like my introduction to opera … and it’s still equally as amazing now as it was when I heard it for the first time.
