Escape into the enchanted world of The Magic Flute for a fabulous adventure. A noble hero and his loveable sidekick must rescue a princess in mortal danger. You’ll meet surprises at every turn, and with the Queen of the Night pulling the strings, not everything is as it seems.

Mozart wrote The Magic Flute for people from all walks of life to enjoy. A masterpiece of humanity and musical delight, this work has been globally popular from the Enlightenment era into the digital age. The Magic Flute will delight you with its big heart, adventurous spirit and unforgettable music.

This bright new production direct from the Sydney Opera House is a journey for all ages. Award-winning director Kate Gaul teams up with acclaimed costume designer Anna Cordingley to create a brilliant adventure with lashes of magic. Performed in English, it’s a great choice for opera first-timers.

A cast of Opera Australia all stars bring this joyous, comedic world to life: Celeste Lazarenko and Shanul Sharma are Pamina and Tamino, opposite Andrew Moran as the hilarious bird catcher Papageno. Esther Song will scale the vocal heights as the Queen of the Night, and David Parkin sings Sarastro.
