Fine Arts Friday: The Magic Flute (Mozart)

We've been studying Mozart as our term's composer. In particular, we've been focusing on one of Mozart's operas, The Magic Flute, for the past several weeks. The girls have not had much exposure to opera, so I took this fun storyline as a good introduction. After listening to the basic plot summary on Classics for Kids, we then watched this short excerpt from the opera. If you're interested, here's the famous duet sung by Papageno and his beloved Papagena :)
