The Magic Flute at the London Coliseum – 5th February to 19th March 2016


magic flute

The Magic Flute is one of Mozart’s most popular operas and has been a great success since 1791 when it was first premiered in Vienna

Complicite artistic director Simon McBurney  directs this wonderfully theatrical and imaginative staging  using live sound effects and stunning animations to help bring this captivating story to life.

In a story about good and evil, Prince Tamino  has to fight  a malicious serpent and an evil sorcerer to gain his beautiful princess . Can he overcome a  dark queen with manipulative motives and three  trials of his courage and virtue ?

The  storytelling will be matched by music of the very highest level, with ENO Music Director Mark Wigglesworth conducting an impressive cast including Allan Clayton as Tamino and Lucy Crowe as Pamina.
