Live from the London Coliseum in stunning HD. The Magic Flute is one of the greatest and most popular operas ever written. Mozart’s timeless classic explores the search for true love and wisdom as the royal prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno must overcome a series of trials in order to rescue the princess Pamina from the grasp of the manipulative Queen of Night.
This is a fantastically theatrical and imaginative staging from Complicite Theatre’s artistic director Simon McBurney where live sound effects and breathtaking animations help bring this captivating tale to life.
The unforgettable storytelling will be matched by music-making of the very highest level, with ENO Music Director Mark Wigglesworth conducting a world-class cast including Allan Clayton as Tamino and Lucy Crowe as Pamina.
