An enchanting production of Mozart's final operatic masterpiece.
True love conquers all in a colourful fairy tale that pits the forces of darkness against truth, goodness and light.
Prince Tamino is on a quest: to rescue the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, who has been kidnapped by her father Sarastro. But is all really as it seems? With the help of bird-catcher Papageno, Tamino must brave not only dragons and the forces of darkness but trials of fire and water if he is to arrive at the truth and gain Pamina as his wife.
Composed just months before his death, Mozart’s final stage work is a musical masterpiece that re-imagines opera for the Age Of Enlightenment. The sweetness and apparent simplicity of this enchanting score conceals a great deal of sophistication, weaving some of the composer’s most beautiful and best-loved melodies together in an elegant allegory whose wicked queens and noble princes are just the beginning of the story.
This playful production sets the action in a turn-of the century Viennese hotel, with the magical elements of the story brought to life with puppetry.
