Vashon Opera will bring “The Magic Flute” to Vashon Center for the Arts, beginning with a reduced-ticket price dress rehearsal at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Weekend performances are slated for 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 18, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 20.

Mozart’s beloved comic opera tells the intertwining stories of a handsome prince, an imperiled princess, a comical birdman and a dramatic and murderous Queen of the Night.

“The Magic Flute” will be sung in English by an all-star company headlined by rising American tenor Limmie Pulliam. Guest artists include mezzo soprano Julia Benzinger, sopranos Kimberly Giordano and Jennifer Krikawa, and baritones Andy Krikawa and José Rubio. Another featured artist is Spencer Myer, gold medalist of the 2008 New Orleans International Piano Competition.

Vashon Opera, founded 10 years ago by island opera diva Jennifer Krikawa, offers opportunities for Vashon singers to take the stage with some of the best regional and national opera talents. It is a place, Krikawa says, to “discover the beauty of opera, the power of community, and the passion and drama of opera’s greatest treasures.”
