A mercurial mix of fairy-tale adventure, knockabout farce, moral allegory and, above all, marvellous music (including the thrilling Queen of the Night Aria), Mozart’s The Magic Flute was premiered just ten weeks before the composer?s tragically early death. It proved to be the biggest popular success of his short life, as well as arguably the most deeply moving of all his operas.
Acclaimed as ‘a well-established jewel of ENO’s repertoir’ (Evening Standard) and ‘one of ENO’s most magical productions’ (The Times), National Theatre Director Nicholas Hytner’s spectacular staging has thrilled audiences of all ages since it was first seen in 1988 and now returns – complete with giant serpent, dancing bears and live performing birds – to celebrate its 25th anniversary on the London Coliseum stage.
With its panto-style storyline, catchy tunes, broad comedy and profound humanity, The Magic Flute is the perfect introduction to opera for anyone who has never been before.
