The “super” production transports Papageno, Tamino and the gang to the land of video games resembling Mario Bros. and Zelda with a new English libretto by Artistic Director Josh Shaw and E. Scott LevinEdward Benyas conducts.

The watch party will feature interviews with the cast and crew, drink recipes, a costume contest, crafts and more. POP is also adding an Education Pack to send to music and drama teachers for use in distance learning, as well as parents who would like to use it with their children at home.
