The Magic Flute, more radiant than ever
Mozart’s light, enchanting Magic Flute is the work of a genius, an opera like no other and a favourite with young and old alike. It has played a significant part in educating Finnish opera generations on both sides of the “curtain”. The production based on the original classic direction by August Everding returns to the repertoire with new, updated lighting and other effects.
With a magic flute to help him, Tamino sets off to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, held prisoner by Sarastro. The Queen swears she will seek revenge on Sarastro and challenges the sun with the radiance of her song. But who is actually on the side of goodness? One of the performances is in the afternoon, to cater for young listeners.
