The Peterborough Players present an encore screening of “The Magic Flute” presented by the Met Opera on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Now a holiday tradition, Julie Taymor’s beloved production of Mozart’s enchanting fairy tale returns in its abridged, English- language version for families. Soprano Erin Morley is the empowered Pamina, and tenor Ben Bliss is the valiant Tamino. Baritone Nathan Gunn is the comic birdcatcher Papageno, and soprano Kathryn Lewek reprises her hair-raising rendition of the malevolent Queen of the Night. Harry Bicket conducts.

Runtime is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.

Tickets to Metropolitan Opera screenings are $25. For tickets and information on this and all upcoming productions, call 924-7585 and visit www.peterboroughplayers.org.
