Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute

Scottish Opera: The Magic Flute

Sir Thomas Allen’s five-star production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s ‘The Magic Flute’, first created in 2012, returns to Scottish Opera, set in a spectacular world inspired by the Victorian futurist writers H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Mozart’s most inventive opera features a handsome prince, a damsel in distress, sorcerers, priests and a bumbling birdcatcher. This production is inspired by the city of Glasgow at the height of its industrial powers, drawing on the aesthetics and ideas of the Enlightenment. Scottish Opera is Scotland’s largest performing arts organisation.
