Join us on a spectacular journey with Simon McBurney’s five-star production of The Magic Flute. Featuring breath-taking visual effects, comic adventure and Mozart’s iconic score, this contemporary take on a classic continues to enchant audiences.
Magical instruments, serpents and sorcerers, trials of character and courage…when you begin an enchanted journey to find love and wisdom, you have to expect delays on the way.
Follow Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno on their quest to rescue Pamina. Equipped with musical instruments enhanced with magical powers they conquer the trials and tribulations on their way towards a deeper understanding of true love and happiness.
Rupert Charlesworth (Partenope) sings Tamino and Thomas Oliemans, a recent Figaro at ENO, plays another comic baritone role, Papageno. Lucy Crowe returns as Pamina, which she sang to great acclaim in 2016, and conductor Ben Gernon makes his ENO debut.
