Whistle Stop Opera: The Magic Flute

23 October - 6 November 2021

Book Now

A noble quest to save the climate…

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!

Join a cast of three professional opera singers and an accordionist on a new whistle stop adventure this autumn, inspired by Mozart’s popular work The Magic Flute. Suitable for all the family, this performance is sure to get everyone hooked on opera!
