The Magic Flute Unwrapped

About this event

Opera

Unwrapped Performance


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 Peter Gijsbertsen (La traviata 2017); Gemma Summerfield, First Prize winner at the 2015 Kathleen Ferrier Awards; name-to-watch Julia Sitkovetsky; and Richard Burkhard, who returns as Papageno, the laugh-out-loud role he created in 2012. Scottish Opera favourite Tobias Ringborg (The Marriage of Figaro 2016) conducts.

 A riot from start to finish, finely crafted, vividly characterised and teeming with telling detail - and most importantly, a real hoot.  THE SCOTSMAN
