The L.A. Opera presents the U.S. premiere of an imaginative, multimedia-intensive staging of Mozart's opera "The Magic Flute."

Created by co-director Barrie Kosky and the British experimental theater group 1927, this version of "The Magic Flute" originated at the Komische Oper Berlin and incorporates hand-drawn animation and influences from the silent-film era.

The opera stars Lawrence Brownlee as Tamino and Janai Brugger as Pamina. Kosky directs with Suzanne Andrade, and the L.A. Opera's James Conlon conducts. For more information, go to the L.A. Opera website. Watch the trailer for "The Magic Flute":
