FLUTE QUEEN:

Taymor's ‘Flute' Plays Again (JAY NORDLINGER, October 9, 2006, NY Sun)

It was exactly two years ago that Julie Taymor's production of "The Magic Flute" premiered at the Metropolitan Opera. While this wasn't a universal opinion, I found it just about the most imaginative and delightful thing ever to come down the pike. I also believe that the composer, Mozart, and the librettist, Herr Schikaneder, would beam with gratitude.

Well, Ms. Taymor's dancing bears and the rest of her menagerie are back at the Met, as the company relaunched "Flute" on Saturday afternoon. The production is even more absorbing than I had remembered.
