Two local students played key roles in this month’s production of “The Magic Flute” at the University of Evansville.
Alletha Barnett of Greenwood, a biology major, was a member of the chorus and portrayed a slave, animal and serpent. Alyssa Brooks of Indianapolis, a music performance major, played the role of Pamina.
The opera tells the story of a prince on a mission to rescue an enslaved princess with help from a flute that has magical powers.
The opera was sung in German (translated for the audience above the stage) with spoken dialogue in English and featured full costumes, sets, lighting and accompaniment by piano, flute and cello.
