An opera in Viroqua? Yes! We’re teaming up with the folks at The Commons to make The Magic Flute a Pickup Truck Operato city. Plan to join us on Sunday, August 21 at 5 p.m. on Rock Avenue in front of the library for this unique performance. This is a family and youth-oriented program!

Mozart’s opera, “The Magic Flute”, is propelled into the not so distant future. With fiery tunes and epic choruses paired with groovy 90s disco beats! Three 20-minute vignettes translate this opera in a way suitable for young people. Expect amazing music, fun characters, colors and fun! Bring your own seat and wear a hat! Snack provided. Free of charge and without registration. The opera will be performed by Mixed Precipitation of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Please call us with any questions at 608-637-7151 ext. 6.
