The Magic Flute
Author(s): Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, text by Emanuel Schikaneder
Company: The Royal College of Music

Mozart’s last opera recounts the trials and tribulations of two opposing yet complementary young couples—Tamino and Pamina and Papageno and Papagena—who, in their search for love, journey through darkness to reach light and happiness.
The Royal College of Music’s new production sets The Magic Flute in a secondary school and a dreamscape of hidden desires. Michael Rosewell conducts.
