Brimming with stunning theatricality and extraordinary imagination, the ENO presents their spectacular new staging of one of the greatest and most popular operas ever written – The Magic Flute.
Mozart’s beloved 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.
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. Conducted by Gergely Madaras (ENO Charles Mackerras Fellow), The Magic Flute features ENO Harewood Artist Ben Johnson as Tamino, American soprano Devon Guthrie as Pamina, Roland Wood as the bird-catcher Papageno and James Creswell as Sarastro.
