Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A bewitching coming-of-age adventure
The Magic Flute is an epic tale about growing up, finding your way in the world and learning to love. Join Prince Tamino on his quest to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night held captive by the Priest of the Sun. But his mission soon becomes a journey of discovery, for nothing – not even Day and Night – is quite as it first appears…
Adventure jostles with dark fantasy, comedy collides with powerful drama, and all to Mozart’s miraculous music. Popular songs are mixed with stirring choruses, arias of heart-melting beauty with dazzling vocal pyrotechnics.
Leeds Playhouse Artistic Director James Brining, together with Set and Costume Designer Colin Richmond, conjures up a Magic Flute that is a feast for the ears and for the eyes.
