Amanda Forsythe joins Charlotte Symphony for Mozart's Magic Flute OveratureBuy tickets

Christopher Warren-Green, conductor
Amanda Forsythe, soprano
 
Mozart's fanciful opera The Magic Flute was quickly embraced by audiences of its day and its overture has remained a popular staple ever since. His Exultate Jubilate is simply fit for a king, and was performed at the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of York. And who knew Haydn could mix it up with the likes of Bob Dylan, Peter Paul & Mary, and Springsteen? His Symphony No. 45, known as the "Farewell" Symphony, represents his own brand of protest music.
