#ONMagicFlute was barkingly brilliant. Awesome evening, thank you @jamesbrining for a fantastical and joyful production. Special shout out to chorus and children’s chorus and the magical effects – wow.

Wonderfully joyous, visually arresting, beautifully sung show: wit, invention, fantasy, theatricality. Framing story & kids chorus to highlight the contemporary resonance of Mozart’s celebration of reason & humanity.Strictly brilliant direction by @jamesbrining #ONMagicFlute https://t.co/fm2NCdlwzb

Really enjoyed it! The production kept us engaged throughout, which doesn’t always happen with Magic Flute. Fun, colourful, well sung. https://t.co/8j1bKxlAdH

@JamesBrining’s #ONMagicFlute is magical audio visual gluttony &, y’know what, bonkers bloody fun! Brotherhood missed a trick not putting #Papagano in charge though. Life-threatening trials? ‘Err, no thanks – do you have a nice glass of wine?’ #MyHero #Paraphrasing #SozMozart
