The five-star production of The Magic Flute returns to the ENO.

Magical instruments. Serpents and sorcerers. Trials of character and courage. When you begin an enchanted journey to find love and wisdom, you have to expect delays on the way.

Mozart’s timeless classic follows the adventures of Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno on their quest to rescue Pamina. To assist their mission, they are given musical instruments enhanced with magical powers, which they deploy to conquer the trials and tribulations placed in their path towards a deeper understanding of true love and happiness.

The cast includes Norman Reinhardt making his ENO debut as Tamino alongside David Stout as Papageno. They are joined by Sarah Tynan as Pamina and the fiery coloratura of ENO debutante Rainelle Krause as the manipulative Queen of Night. The ENO Chorus and Orchestra are conducted for the first time by Erina Yashima.

A collaboration with ENO. Co-production with Dutch National Opera and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence.
Original production supported by ENO’s Contemporary Opera Group and the English National Opera Trust
