Bizarre and spellbinding. The Magic Flute features two love stories, a serpent, a Queen, a High Priest and a comedian, whose intrigues unfold to the beauty of Mozart's most popular opera score and Schikaneder's witty dialogue
A bold, new take on Mozart's classic. With magic supplied by Glyn Maxwell's (The Firework-Maker's Daughter, Royal Opera House) mischievous poetry, Alex Beetschen's (Marriage of Figaro, OperaUpClose) lively orchestration and Valentina Ceschi's (Elixir of Love and Dido & Aeneas, OperaUpClose) theatrical creativity, this production will re-invent The Magic Flute in fabulous new robes for the era of Trump and recessions, casting rays of light and love into the darkness.
