The Magic Flute

Passed

This event has been and gone.

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 enthralling Magic Flute perfectly balances the opera’s beguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime with a profound story of the search for wisdom, love and truth.

A handsome prince, a damsel in 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 tenor Peter Gijsbertsen, baritone James Cleverton, name-to-watch Julia Sitkovetsky and Gemma Summerfield, First Prize winner at the 2015 Kathleen Ferrier Awards. Scottish Opera favourite Tobias Ringborg conducts.
