The Magic Flute

17 Sep 2014

Opera Australia

A quest for wisdom and true love

A new production from Opera Australia.


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? Find out when Opera Australia
brings this ripping yarn for all the family to the Princess Theatre.

The Magic Flute is a quest for wisdom and true love. Taking inspiration from the movies, director Michael Gow and designer Robert Kemp have set their new touring production of Mozart’s final work for the stage as a rollicking adventure 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. Which is why you’ll find something for everyone in there, 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, when this new, fully staged production of The Magic Flute comes to the Princess Theatre, complete with fabulous 1930s costumes, live music and a vibrant cast of singers.

Sung in English, performed with chamber orchestra and featuring a Regional Children's Choir starring The Greater Launceston Youth Singers under the direction of Denise Sam.
