Every now and then we need a night at the theatre that just makes us smile. Warm, fun and witty, Mozart's The Magic Flute does just that.
Director Dominic Cooke presents a bold production that combines Mozart's sublime music with surreal staging featuring an angry lobster, a newspaper reading lion and a fish doubling as a bicycle.
A rich mix of comedy, pantomime, philosophy and religion, on a breathtaking Magritte-inspired set design, The Magic Flute is an irrepressibly entertaining evening.
Mozart's most famous opera is a story of young people finding their place in the world, working out for themselves what is true and what is false, what is right and what is quite wrong. It's a journey through darkness into the light.
Suitable for all the family, The Magic Flute is the perfect introduction to opera, with moments of total enchantment and music that will remain in the memory forever. Come and witness this unforgettable experience.
