The Magic Flute
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder, English translation by Andrew Porter)
The adventurous Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird catcher Papageno, but all is not as it initially seems... This production sees the pair painted in the guise of Grand Tour explorers who seek classical antiquity, but are instead thrust into Mozart's timeless, chaotic, fairytale world. Here, they encounter mythical incarnations of the ancient world more vivid than they could have ever previously imagined...
Sung in modern English, this fully staged production of an opera that has charmed audiences for centuries offers comedy, danger, romance, and drama. Cambridge University's vibrant opera scene bursts onto the ADC stage, uniting Mozart's enchanting score with an exciting theatrical spectacle.
There will be a post-show discussion after the performance on Thursday 31 October.
