A Night at the Opera. The Mariinsky Concert Hall again for The Magic Flute by Mozart.

Here is the overture.

 

Some images at the booking office and at the concert hall.

Notwithstanding that the story is very complicated and is sung in Russian, it is an exellent performance which is very enjoyable. The performers move around the audience, drawing us in to the action.
