A bewitching coming-of-age adventure

The Magic Flute is an epic fantasy about growing up, finding your way in the world and learning to love. Join Prince Tamino on his quest to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night held captive by Sarastro, the Priest of the Sun. But his mission soon becomes a journey of discovery, for nothing – not even Day and Night – is quite as it first appears.

Adventure jostles with fantasy, comedy collides with drama, and Mozart sets it all to a score full of miraculous music. Popular songs are mixed with stirring choruses, arias of heart-melting beauty with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics. This new production by James Brining – who directed the acclaimed West Yorkshire Playhouse/ Opera North co-production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods– is the ideal introduction to opera for everyone.
