JULY 9 – 21

THE MAGIC FLUTE In the forest at Midtåsen July 9 – 11 – 16 – 18 and 19 at 17.00
It is quite frightening to see Prince Tamino coming running breathless through the forest at Midtåsen – followed by an evil fire-breathing dragon. Fortunately, he meets Papageno – a nice and lively fellow – whose job is to catch birds for The Queen of the Night. He helps Tamino to find a girlfriend – a Princess – but would really like to find a nice girl for himself as well… The Magic Flute that Tamino gets as a gift, helps him through all kinds of dangerous situations – and a glockenspiel makes Papageno able to get rid of the most vicious creatures.

Ten professional singers perform the musical fairytale together with The Three Boys, Pap-Pap-children, a flautist and a pianist……and the fire-breathing dragon!

SWEETHEART SODA! In the forest at Midtåsen July 10 – 12 – 14 – 17 and 21 at 17.00
The trickster Dulcamara arrives in a small village – far out in the forest at Midtåsen – and fools the young innocent farmer Nemorino with his magic elixir! Adina – who has a great interest in horses and reading – doesn’t really want to be Nemorino’s sweetheart. But, after a while she realizes what’s the best for herself – and for all the inhabitants living there. They are actually “Soda-spelled”!

Freely after Donizetti’s opera L’Elisir d’amore and his cheerful music!
