Revival of the 2012 production.
Sung in English with English supertitles.
Sir Thomas Allen returns to Scottish Opera to revive his five-star production of Mozart's most inventive opera. Set in a spectacular world inspired by the Victorian futurism of HG Wells and Jules Verne, this entralling Magic Flute perfectly balances the opera's buguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime with a profound story of the search for wisdom, love and truth.
A handsome prince, a damsel in the distress, sorcerers, priests and a bumbling bird catcher - all are given life in Mozart's sublime blend of lyrical love duets, folk-like ditties and the explosive coloratura of the Queen of the Night arias. The international cast includes Peter Gijsbertsen (La traviata 2017); Gemma Summerfield, First Prize winner at the 2015 Kathleen Ferrier Awards; name to watch Julia Sitkovetsky; and Richard Buckhard, who returns to Papageno, the laugh-out-loud role he created in 2012. Scottish Opera favourite Tobias Ringborg (The Marriage of Figaro 2016) conducts.
