The Magic Flute

Saturday 16 August 2014, 7.30pm
Presented by Opera Australia's Oz Opera

A quest for wisdom and true love.

The ancient tombs of the Pharaohs hide many secrets. Will Tamino the daring archaeologist find them? Will it be Papageno, the zany ornithologist? Or will the forces of evil crack the code, find the treasure and get the girl? Find out when Opera Australia’s Oz Opera presents a ripping yarn for all the family.

The Magic Flute is a quest for wisdom and true love. Taking inspiration from the movies, director Michael Gow and designer Robert Kemp have set their new production of Mozart’s final work for the stage as a rollicking adventure in 1930’s Egypt. There will be mummies, hieroglyphic puzzles and a good few laughs along the way, but is it opera?

Mozart didn’t care, and nor should you. He was far more concerned with firing his audience’s imagination through the power of music – which is why you’ll find something for everyone in there, from the Queen of the Night’s demented showstoppers through to achingly beautiful arias, to simple ballads that wrap you up in warmth and charm.

Prepare to be enchanted, when this new, fully-staged production of The Magic Flute comes to Dubbo, complete with fabulous 1930s costumes, a chamber orchestra and a vibrant young cast of singers.

Sung in English.

The Oz Opera touring program is supported by funding from the Opera Conference - the national partnerships of professional opera companies which is assisted by the Australian Government, through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Performance Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes (including 20 minute interval)
