Making Magic (world premiere)
by Stephen Schwartz

From the composer of The Prince of Egypt, Godspell, Pippin and the global phenomenon Wicked, the ADO presents an in-concert, world-premiere performance of Stephen Schwartz’s new musical. A captivating love story, Magic Makers tells the turbulent story of a fascinating theatrical couple without whom Mozart’s The Magic Flute may never have been written.
