Here’s the perfect way to introduce your little New Yorkers to the Opera. The Met’s English-language family adaptation of Mozart’s sublime and mystical journey, The Magic Flute, is a holiday tradition in the city. Arrive before the show for a pre-curtain Open House with family-friendly activities related to the production. Met artists and craftspeople will lead a “dress-up” station featuring child-friendly costume pieces; an instrument show-and-tell with members of the orchestra; a live demonstration by the Met scenic artists who create props and set elements for all of the company’s productions; and a lighting display by the Met’s electrics department.
