The Mondavi Center launches a series of three high-definition broadcasts of San Francisco Opera productions at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre, with screening of the 2007 production of the much-beloved opera “The Magic Flute” by W.A. Mozart. Sung in German with English supertitles, the screening runs 2 hours, 54 minutes, including behind-the-scenes interviews with artists involved with the production in between acts. The photo above shows baritone Nathan Gunn as Papageno, who uses his magic flute to attract birds. Tickets are $20 general, $10 students. There is also a season-ticket plan that includes Monday’s broadcast of “Magic Flute” plus a Feb. 4 screening of “Salome” by Richard Strauss and an April 15 screening of “Il Trittico” by Giacomo Puccini.
