APRIL 6 TO 13  An enchanted tale of courage in the face of danger and the triumph of light over darkness, The Magic Flute ushers in spring courtesy of Opera Atelier, Toronto’s renowned producer of Baroque- and Classical-era masterpieces. Mozart’s much-loved singspiel follows Prince Tamino, who, alongside lonely bird-catcher Papageno, must rescue the Queen of the Night’s daughter from the sorcerer Sarastro. A certain charmed musical instrument, of course, helps the prince endure the trials that await him. Elgin Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 p.m., Sunday 3 p.m, $40 to $160; call 416-703-3767 or visit operaatelier.com for more information.  —Macrina Smart
