The Magic Flute

By Glyn Maxwell

Directed by Valentina Ceschi

Orchestration by Alex Beetschen


Suitable for ages 7+

Following its hugely popular re-imaginings of operas like La Bohème and Don Giovanni, Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose makes its debut at Nuffield Southampton Theatres with a brilliant take on Mozart’s classic The Magic Flute, re-inventing the opera in fabulous new robes for the era of Trump and recessions.

Invited behind the velvet rope at London’s most exclusive club, Tamino doesn’t have time to stop for beggars, paparazzi, or even his girlfriend Pamina. Going to bed after a blazing row later that night, this ordinary couple relive the events and encounters of the evening in dreams made extraordinary by the lateness of the hour, their befuddled senses, and yes, a touch of magic.
