While Opera Omaha and the four other producing operas of “The Magic Flute” declined to reveal its overall cost, Opera Omaha general director Roger Weitz said scenery and costumes alone cost more than $1 million.
That's more than four times the cost of costumes and scenery for Opera Omaha's “Madama Butterfly,” which artist Jun Kaneko designed for the 2006 season.
