Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute
His Majesty's Theatre
Sir Thomas Allen returns to Scottish Opera to revive his five-star production of Mozart’s most inventive opera.
Sir Thomas Allen returns to Scottish Opera to revive his acclaimed production of Mozart’s most inventive opera. Set in a spectacular world inspired by the Victorian futurism of HG Wells and Jules Verne, this enthralling Magic Flute perfectly balances the opera’s beguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime with a profound story of the search for wisdom, love and truth. All are given life in Mozart’s sublime blend of lyrical love duets, folk-like ditties and the explosive coloratura of the Queen of the Night arias.
Revival of the 2012 production. Sung in English with English supertitles.
