The Magic Flute – directed and adapted for Opera Anywhere by Susan Moore
A young man with a passion for books reads about a magical kingdom where ‘day’ and ‘night’ wage war against each other. As he reads he is consumed by the story, so much so that he realises that he has fallen into his own fantasy world. He meets the Queen of the Night and her mortal enemy, the leader of the Sun Temple, the mighty Sarastro. The Queen and her Three Ladies charge him with a quest, to rescue the Queen’s daughter, the beautiful Pamina, who has been kidnapped by Monostatos, a henchman working for Sarastro. Accompanied by the bird catcher, Papageno, the young man, Tamino, starts a voyage of discovery as he searches for love, truth and consequently a purpose higher than himself, with only his Magic Flute and Three Boys to guide him.
An innovative, intimate, immediate interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. Starring award-winning Shakespearean actor Emily Carding (Richard III) alongside a cast of local professionals, and produced by dynamic new local theatre company Theatre Nation in partnership with St Mary in the Castle.
