A malicious serpent. An evil sorcerer who is holding a beautiful princess captive. A dark queen with manipulative motives. And three testing trials of his courage and virtue. What else must Prince Tamino overcome in his quest for love, light and wisdom?
The Magic Flute is one of the greatest and most popular operas ever written. This is a wonderfully theatrical and imaginative staging from Complicite artistic director Simon McBurney where live sound effects and breathtaking animations help bring this captivating tale to life.
The unforgettable storytelling will be matched by music of the very highest level, with ENO Music Director Mark Wigglesworth conducting a world-class cast including Allan Clayton as Tamino and Lucy Crowe as Pamina.
Please note there is no view of the surtitles from row H backwards in the Dress Circle and from rows K and L backwards in the Upper Circle. All productions are sung in English.
