Enjoy Romance and Mischief With The Magic Flute Tickets

Love and mischief abound at the London Coliseum as Simon McBurney’s striking, five-star production of The Magic Flute returns, performed by the English National Opera. This acclaimed production is a spectacle that makes Mozart’s beloved tale flourish.

The Magic Flute Story

In a distant kingdom, Prince Tamino and bird-catcher Papageno are on a quest to rescue Pamina, the Queen of the Night’s daughter. Aided by magical instruments, nothing is as it seems; soon, their journey becomes far more than a rescue mission as they search for truth, reason and enlightenment.

This fantastical adventure is a beloved fable that questions the true meaning of love and happiness, here directed by McBurney with bold, striking theatrical elements that leap across the stage.

The London cast of The Magic Flute opera includes Norman Reinhardt making his ENO debut as Tamino, David Stout as Papageno, Soraya Mafi as Pamina and Rainelle Krause as the manipulative Queen of Night. Erina Yashima conducts the ENO chorus and orchestra

Who wrote The Magic Flute?

The Magic Flute was written by composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder.

Mozart is known as one of the most gifted classical composers to ever live, and a child prodigy. The Magic Flute premiered in 1791, not long before his death, and marked the end of an illustrious and breathtaking career. His more than 800 works across various genres included the operas Cosi fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro.

The Magic Flute is written in German singspiel form, which means it has both sung elements and spoken dialogue. Singspiels are traditionally influenced by folk tales, magic, myths and stories of good versus evil - which matches Mozart’s opera almost perfectly.
