Open Day Whistle Stop: The Magic Flute

Wednesday 27 Oct 2021

This event has passed.

This event is part of Open Day: Backstage Pass, a one-off chance to experience what really goes on behind the scenes.

Join us for a special Whistle Stop Opera performance as a cast of three professional opera singers and an accordionist take on a noble quest to save the climate in a new whistle stop adventure suitable for all ages, inspired by Mozart’s popular work The Magic Flute.

Prince Tamino has fallen madly in love with the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night. All appears well in the kingdom, but look closer and you’ll notice there’s something strange afoot in this mythical world…

Much to the confusion of bird-catcher Papageno, birds are disappearing. Animals are no longer coming out to hear Tamino’s music. The magical world of flutes and dancing bells is changing, and it’s up to Tamino to do something about it before it’s too late!

Tickets will be available on the day but booking is advised.
