Mozart’s glorious opera is brought enchantingly to life in David McVicar’s classic production with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane.
Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno - but all is not as it seems…
David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies.
‘The Magic Flute’ was an instant success with audiences and Mozart’s supposed rival Salieri described it as an ‘Operone’ – a great opera.
The cast includes Mauro Peter, Siobhan Stagg, Roderick Williams. Sung in German in 2 acts with English subtitles. 190m approx including interval.
Tickets £17.50 (Friends/Students £15)
