One of the greatest and most popular operas ever written, Mozart’s timeless classic The Magic Flute is brought to life at the London Coliseum by Complicite’s Artistic Director Simon McBurney.

The opera explores the search for true love and wisdom as the royal prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno attempt to overcome a series of trials in order to rescue Pamina from the grasp of the manipulative Queen of Night.

The unforgettable storytelling, which features live sound effects and breathtaking animations, is matched by music-making of the very highest level, with ENO Music Director Mark Wigglesworth conducting a world-class cast including Allan Clayton and Lucy Crowe.

The production is sung in English with lyrics projected above the stage.
