        Is it in Italian? Will there be a sub title screen above the stage?

          I'm pretty sure that The Magic Flute was written in German, by Mozart.

            I hope they don't sing in German. What an ugly sounding language.

                      I've heard rumors that the character of Dr. Frank-N-Furter is based on mookie.

                        You should listen to the libretto. It's gorgeous in Zauberflute.

                          I'm pretty sure he was making a joke. MF is famously in German. It is partly a brutal paraody and takedown of Italian opera, with the "Queen of the Night" aria a vicious mockery of Italian coloratura airas.

                            German yes. And indeed subtlety funny. The house is beautiful. Mookie is glad me went. Rookie mistake being impatient and not one to wait in line for the lift, Mookie did the 15 story walk out of covent garden (197 steps). Whew!!!

                              It's better in the original German.
