Bringing a Dragon out of Storage

Bringing a Dragon out of Storage

Posted by Opera Gal in Props 04 Mar 2013

Our production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute has many beautiful and magical elements to it, and one of them is a dragon. Our Props Master brought it out last week to make sure it was still in good shape, and look for any repairs that needed to be made.

Dragon from The Magic Flute

The dragon is pretty big, and takes ideally 6 people to maneuver it!

My favorite part is being able to see the detail close up. Its head is covered with multicolored beads and mirrors so that it will be colorful and vibrant under the stage lights.

    For some reason I didn’t remember this from the 2006 performance. When was it built?
