The Magic Flute | Longborough Festival Opera

Part of the Longborough Festival Opera 2017

Add to my Calendar 22-07-2017 17:00 22-07-2017 19:00 36 The Magic Flute | Longborough Festival Opera Prince Tamino has been rescued by the Queen of the Night, and in return agrees to save her daughter Pamina from the enchanting high priest Sarastro. Accompanied by the birdcatcher Papageno and armed with magical musical instruments, he sets off on a quest full of trials and peril. A thinly-veiled tribute to Freemasonry, Mozart’s perhaps most popular opera is a comedy with philosophical connotations. With a story portraying the education of mankind from chaos to enlightenment, The Magic Flute sees the serious and the comic beautifully intermingle inside a fairytale plot. This production combines the talents of designer Ruth Paton – who has worked with the RSC, the Royal Opera House, ENO and Opera North – with the innovative director of Longborough's acclaimed 2016 Le nozze di Figaro Thomas Guthrie, who has seen success at the Royal Opera House and whose ‘imagination knows no bounds’ (Opera Now). Together with the rare chance to see prized maestro Anthony Negus conduct Mozart at Longborough, this is sure to be a special production. Longborough Festival Opera is one of the UK's finest country opera houses, an intimate 500-seat theatre set amidst the glorious rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Take in the picturesque views, bring a picnic and enjoy spectacular opera – the 2017 Festival includes Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Beethoven’s Fidelio, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.
