About Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute

Shows only: Wed 5th, Sun 9th, Tue 11th, Thu 13th & Sat 15th June 2019
Evenings 7.15pm, Matinee Sun 3pm


Sir Thomas Allen returns to Scottish Opera to revive his acclaimed production of Mozart’s most inventive opera. Set in a spectacular world inspired by the Victorian futurism of HG Wells and Jules Verne, this enthralling Magic Flute perfectly balances the opera’s beguiling mix of comedy, fantasy and pantomime with a profound story of the search for wisdom, love and truth. All are given life in Mozart’s sublime blend of lyrical love duets, folk-like ditties and the explosive coloratura of the Queen of the Night arias.

Revival of the 2012 production. Sung in English with English supertitles.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
