    Most opera fans are familiar with The Magic Flute, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s whimsical masterpiece about a prince who, given an enchanted instrument, embarks on a quest to rescue his true love from evil forces.

Audience members find the opera’s arias intact but, in an exciting twist, arranged for a trumpet player and marimba-based orchestra. at Spaulding Auditorium, Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth College in Hanover.

    'Conduits'

    Tools

    Through Oct. 31

    At the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, works by three artists speak to the essence of art appreciation itself. Painters Richard Heller and Liz Hawkes deNiord and wet plate collodion print photographer Rachel Portesi “challenge the viewer to engage with the works, discovering connected meaning beyond what is seen,” according to a gallery statement. Heller’s paintings most literally hew to the theme with extraordinary spatial depth and infinite networks that seem equally rooted in mathematics and biology. Hawkes deNiord creates deeply layered paintings, allowing luminescence to peer through. Portesi uses an evocative 19th-century photographic technique that may inspire viewers to question their relationship to hair — and perhaps to pine for the heyday of analog photography. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
