Pop Culture and Freemasonry: The Magic Flute Act 1

Wow, I'm going old school for this Pop Culture and Freemasonry installment. Today's entry is the Opera, "The Magic Flute" by brother Amadeus Mozart. Many scholars have acknowledged that the Magic Flute has very overt Masonic overtones. Edmond Masonic Lodge #37 has presented a very good article in regards to the Masonic meanings. I have also posted the first Act of the Magic Flute preformed by Northwestern University. Enjoy!
