Enter an enchanted world and join Prince Tamino on his quest to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, held captive by Sarastro, the Priest of the Sun.
Tamino is accompanied by Papageno, a bird-catcher, who is also on a quest – to find himself a wife, his Papagena.

But their mission soon becomes a journey of discovery, for nothing – not even Day and Night – is quite as it first appears.

The Magic Flute is a delight for audiences of all ages. Mozart’s miraculous music mixes popular songs with stirring choruses, arias of heart-melting beauty with dazzling vocal fireworks. Celebrating the power of music and imagination to reconcile seeming opposites, James Brining’s production is the ideal introduction to opera for everyone.

There is a pre-show talk before the Thu 6 & Fri 7 Mar performances at 6pm – tickets are free but must be pre-booked
