Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The Magic Flute

Enchanting and evocative, The Magic Flute, is a lyrical love story, set against an atmospheric backdrop of fantasy and mischief combining moments of high comedy with intrigue, kidnap, and elemental trials.  The Irish Times

 

The sublime score ripples with irresistible charm; from the stratospheric arias of the Queen of the Night, to the glorious melodies of Papageno, both reflecting Mozart’s dramatic genius and enthusiasm for life. Sung in English with Music Direction by Brenda Hurley, this production is directed by Annilese Miskimmon and designed by Nicky Shaw, with lighting design by Sinead McKenna.

Opera Theatre Company’s chamber ensemble performs the captivating score sung by a cast including: Owen Gilhooly, Adrian Dwyer, Allison Bell, Emma Morwood, Matthew Trevino, Lawrence Thackeray, Mary O’Sullivan, Joan O'Malley, Mihaela Loredana Chirvase, Nathan Morrison, and Eoin Hynes.
