Mozart and Mario would possibly sound actually related in identify, however they do not have too many different similarities — apart from that one time that Mozart was in a little-known SNES/NES sport referred to as Mario’s Time Machine, however let’s not fear about that for now.
Our level is that it’s a must to be fairly darn inventive to mash the 2 up into an opera, however that is simply what the LA-based Pacific Opera Mission has carried out with their retelling of Mozart’s opera, The Magic Flute — or as they’re calling it, #Superflute.
POP is a gaggle attempting to supply “high quality opera that’s accessible, inexpensive, and entertaining”, and as a part of that purpose, they’ve carried out mash-ups earlier than — Mozart and Star Trek, Mozart and Scarface, even Mozart and COVID. They final carried out a Nintendo-flavoured Magic Flute in 2019, which featured characters like Mega Man, Donkey Kong, Wario, Zelda, and Pit from Child Icarus.
This is what the director needed to say on the time concerning the present (from LAist):
“[The theme] simply lined up so effectively, as a result of you have got Tamino within the Magic Flute, who’s all about happening quests, and looking for his princess, Pamina — and that’s Zelda and Hyperlink precisely. After which you have got Mario, who’s a coin collector — Papageno’s a fowl collector, so it is a fairly shut correlation there.”
If that is even half pretty much as good as that one Nintendo-themed burlesque present we went to ages in the past, we’re reserving tickets to LA sharpish. And if you happen to’re already in LA — you can buy tickets right here.
