Mozart’s The Magic Flute 4 – 6 September 2014
Mozart’s The Magic Flute

Synopsis

4-6
SEPTEMBER

“AS ONE OF MOZART’S MOST BELOVED OPERAS, THIS EXCITING NEW PRODUCTION OF THE MAGIC FLUTE, is an adventure which will delight audiences both young and old.”

— Lyndon Terracini, Artistic Director, Opera Australia

A QUEST FOR WISDOM AND TRUE LOVE.

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?

The Magic Flute is a ripping yarn for all the family. This new production transforms Mozart’s final work into a rollicking adventure set in 1930s Egypt.

There will be mummies, hieroglyphic puzzles and a good few laughs along the way, but is it opera? Mozart didn’t care, and nor should you. He was far more concerned with firing his audience’s imagination through the power of music.

There is something for everyone in The Magic Flute – from the Queen of the Night’s demented showstoppers, to achingly beautiful arias, to simple ballads that wrap you up in warmth and charm.

Prepare to be enchanted as Oz Opera’s vibrant cast of singers takes you through this mysterious and wonderful tale.
