AFTER a two-year wait, Opera Australia returns to Armidale tomorrow night with its new production of The Magic Flute at Lazenby Hall.
Mozart’s most popular opera, The Magic Flute is a quest for wisdom and true love. Taking inspiration from the movies, director Michael Gow and designer Robert Kemp have set their new production as a rollicking adventure in 1930s Egypt.
Sung in English with a great set, this new production features mummies, hieroglyphic puzzles and a good few laughs along the way.
But is it opera? Mozart didn’t care, and nor should you.
Mozart loved firing his audience’s imagination through writing incredibly powerful music.
Which is why you’ll find something for everyone – from the Queen of the Night’s demented showstoppers, to achingly beautiful arias from lovers Tamino and Pamina.
Prepare to be enchanted with this new production of The Magic Flute complete with fabulous 1930s costumes, a chamber orchestra and a vibrant cast of singers.
Tickets are available at trybooking.com/91519 or at the door tomorrow night.
