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.

Please bring ID when using U26 tickets as you may be asked for proof of age.
