Opera Alegría presents

The Magic Flute

W.A. Mozart, new English Libretto by Lindsay Bramley

Direction by Benjamin Newhouse-Smith

Tamino and Pamina find themselves caught between the machinations of the Queen of the Night and her enemy Sarastro, on a quest for truth, honesty, love and balance.

Mozart and Schikaneder’s glittering singspiel has enthralled audiences for over 200 years. The beguiling melodies and unforgettable ensembles are deserved favourites with opera fanatics and casual enthusiasts alike.

Returning following a sellout season at the Arcola in 2019 with Rossini’s Count Ory, Opera Alegría continue on their own journey to chart a course that balances respect for and joy derived from opera, and bringing it to new audiences in ways that make it ever more engaging and accessible.

The Magic Flute is part of Grimeborn Opera Festival 2022. Explore the full programme →
