About the show
See Mozart’s comedic masterpiece performed as never before! The Magic Flute is richly reimagined in a boundary-busting production created by internationally renowned opera director Barrie Kosky and British theatre group 1927. Blending animated film and live action in a gloriously inventive kaleidoscope of 1920s silent movies, Weimar cabaret, dark humour and German expressionism, this visual fantasia is made for film buffs and opera lovers alike.
