The Magic Flute

Perth Festival presents THE MAGIC FLUTE in association with West Australian Opera and West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

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.
