ENO’s The Magic Flute

English National Opera’s new production of The Magic Flute is a dramatic and highly visual new interpretation of Mozart’s much-loved and popular classic. Directed by Simon McBurney and in collaboration with innovative theatre group, Complicite.

The Magic Flute contains some of Mozart’s most cherished and famous music, including the unforgettable and instantly recognisable overture and the soaring vocal fireworks of the Queen of the Night aria.

This magical tale follows Prince Tamino and bird-catcher Papageno on an adventure to rescue Princess Pamina. On their journey they meet fantastical creatures and face unexpected trials and challenges in a light-hearted but profound examination of man’s search for love and his struggle to attain wisdom and virtue.
 
Following its sell-out success in Amsterdam last year, Complicite's artistic director Simon McBurney brings this innovative new interpretation to the London Coliseum stage – making the orchestra a visible part of the action and using breathtaking projections throughout.
