@365Atlanta: The opera begins with a very Mozart-ian overture. How can anyone hear Mozart and NOT feel happy? #magicflute @TheAtlantaOpera
@ATL_Events: Always admired classical musicians, so much training, discipline, talent, and you can barely see them down in the pit! #magicflute
@365Atlanta: Amazing set – W. A. Mozart himself welcomes you to #magicflute
@ATL_Events: Opening song was incredible, three amazing divas. #magicflute
@365Atlanta: Interesting new production of #magicflute -English dialogue with German lyrics (English supertitles) – great way to initiate new operagoers!
@365Atlanta: Sean Panikkar is a very easy-on-the-ears tenor as Tamino in @TheAtlantaOpera’s #magicflute. I love a tenor…
@oaklandcemetery: 3 divas craving affection, a light saber (#magicflute), a sidekick, & mission to save a princess: story of my life! Booyah!
@oaklandcemetery: “We live by love alone”. True words y’all from the #MagicFlute
@365Atlanta: Dear @TheAtlantaOpera: Next time, I wanna be the porcupine. Thanks! =) #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: I think the #magicflute just summoned the caddyshack gopher! J/K y’all. Loving the interaction of actors & #puppets! Fun!
@suerodman: Slaves were attracted to the bells like boys to a DS #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: Woah! The Sarastro pyramid ensemble scene is impressive. Boo-yah! #magicflute
@suerodman: Intermission at #magicflute So far enjoying my first Opera. Not what I expected. Amazing voices, puppets, fabulous sets, and it’s funny.
@ATL_Events: Really impressed with the cast of #magicflute. Amazing singing, acting, gorgeous costumes. Funny and easy to follow with the subtitles.
@acjudge: #magicflute is awesome so far: incredible set, pretty funny, talented artists, i’m digging it. Gotta admit, i was nervous about liking opera
@acjudge: Plus, if learning about opera isn’t enough to get you to come to #magicflute, there is a big porcupine. Yes, that’s correct
@parkcofield: I can hear the chorus warming up with the chorus master. You’re in for a treat during act two! #magicflute
@365Atlanta: “Without [a man’s] guidance, a woman may overstep her bounds.” Oh, Wolfgang… #magicflute @TheAtlantaOpera
@365Atlanta: Tamino and Papageno’s trials: “You may see her but you may not speak to her.” I know a few guys this would work best for. #magicflute
@suerodman: Oh man, you sure she isn’t the evil stepmother. Ordering her daughter to commit murder #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: The Queen’s voice is absolutely amazing! Just wow! #magicflute
@365Atlanta: The Queen of the Night’s aria is one of the most difficult & famous pieces written – hear it LIVE at @TheAtlantaOpera’s #magicflute
@ATL_Events: Now I know why they say the Queen of the Night role is so difficult! Challenging arias. #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: Puppets, pyrotechnics, and fog machines. Triple play of #magicflute awesomeness. Boo-yah!
@365Atlanta: Why I love opera: Pamina (after mtg Tamino once): “Don’t you love me anymore?” & then sorrowful song how her joy’s gone forever. #magicflute
@365Atlanta: Sarastro & his priests – the original frat boys, all secret ceremonies and torches and symbols. All they need is a keg of PBR. #magicflute
@TheAtlantaOpera: We have some great Tweeters tonight at #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: I want to know what is inside the box that lights up when opened. It’s like the briefcase from Pulp Fiction. #magicflute
@TheAtlantaOpera: @oaklandcemetery It’s Paminas soul. #magicflute
@365Atlanta: The Queen of the Night is a flashy and spectacular role, but the @TheAtlantaOpera’s Pamina shines! #magicflute
@365Atlanta: Tamino must’ve listened to his mother & stuck with those flute lessons as a kid – it’s a good thing since it saves his life. #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: The advice Admiral Ackbar would give Tamino about risking his life for love: Its a Trap! #magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: Great comic relief from the Papagena character. He really wants and needs to find a lady friend.#magicflute
@oaklandcemetery: I love the contrast of costumes & puppets being very bright set against the sand tones in the background. #magicflute
@365Atlanta: Good conquers evil, day conquers night. All happy endings and lovers uniting here at @TheAtlantaOpera’s #magicflute.
@suerodman: I throughly enjoyed my first Opera! Thx @TheAtlantaOpera. #magicflute
@katiemanderson: Still thinking about the puppets in the #magicflutefrom @CtrPuppetryArts – reminded me of the vampire puppets in Forgetting Sarah Marshall
