The Magic Flute

By Mozart

A ripping yarn for the family, wrapped up in the music of Mozart

08 Aug – 09 Aug


The ancient tombs of the Pharaohs hide many secrets. Will Tamino, the daring archaeologist find them? Will it be Papageno, the zany ornithologist? Or will the forces of evil crack the code, find the treasure and get the girl?

Drawing inspiration from popular adventure films, director Michael Gow (Don Giovanni) returns with a rollicking new production of The Magic Flute. Prepare to be enchanted by this new, fully-staged production, complete with fabulous 1930s costumes, a chamber orchestra and a vibrant cast of singers, as well as a special appearance from a local children's chorus.

Recommended for ages 8+.
