Welcome to a world where animals dance and children fly, where princes battle dragons and hope battles despair. To a world where ideas matter, and music saves the day. Welcome to an enchanting new production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute .
Julie Taymor, director of The Lion King, has taken Mozart’s fairy tale and turned it into a show that speaks to the child in all of us. Dazzling costumes, puppetry, English dialogue and theatrical ingenuity meet the melodies of a musical genius. This is sure to be a perfect introduction to opera.
Tamino is a noble prince on a quest. He discovers strange lands and wondrous creatures but will he discover the truth behind the magic? And will he find true love?
This production was reproduced by Opera Australia from the original production of THE MAGIC FLUTE by The Metropolian Opera, New York.
