Joan Kretschmer

Yona Goes To The Magic Flute is a fun-filled fantasy introduction to Mozart’s great opera, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte).

An extraordinary young girl travels with her teachers and her friend, Ulysses, to the Metropolitan Opera in the Flights of Fancy, a flying piano. Their adventure/lesson is a unique introduction to Mozart’s genius––for opera goers, their children, and grandchildren.

The young heroine is Yona Short, who has magical musical powers. She can change human behavior just by THINKING ABOUT MUSIC.

The story is a sequel to YONA: DISCOVERIES, DOORWAYS, AND MUSICAL SUPERPOWER which introduced Yona as she began her education and experiments with her powers.

“Joan Kretschmer’s book Yona Goes to the Magic Flute is a wonderful introduction to the world of Classical Music for children of all ages.”
Robert Langevin, Principal Flute, New York Philharmonic
