The (mini) Magic Flute
A reimagining of the opera for children
Based on the story and with music from the opera by W.A.Mozart
Join us on a magical adventure....
...As Tamino, a prince from a far away kingdom, goes in search of his princess on a magical, mysterious, sometimes dangerous (sometimes bizarre!) journey... A host of characters, including the comedic bird-catcher Papageno, the wicked Queen of the Night, the princess Pamina - even some animals! - will take you on a musical, magical adventure, in this retelling of one of the most imaginative operas ever written. Designed especially for children, this is the perfect introduction to opera .
Presented in a light-hearted and fresh way by three opera singers and an accordionist, this production, originally devised for Opera North at the CBBC summer social, is inspired by the story of The Magic Flute, in which a prince goes on an adventure in search of his princess, Pamina (with the help of a magic flute and some magic bells!) and encountering many magical creatures along the way... The audience is invited to be part of the story, resulting in a magical, comic, punchy reimagining of Mozart’s opera.
The children will take part in this interactive show while also enjoying a high quality performance by professional actors and musicians in the atmospheric surroundings of St. Paul’s Church, Covent Garden.
