Why See Metropolitan Opera: Die Zauberflote?

Classical & Opera

a brand new Production!

Die Zauberflote or The Magic Flute returns to the Metropolitan Opera in its first new staging in 20 years. This stirring tale of supernatural trials and adventure was one of Mozart's most popular and continues to mesmerize audiences to this day. Don't miss this exciting new production, directed by the esteemed Simon McBurney.

McBurney's new interpretation of this classic Mozart opera includes theatrical flourishes aplenty, with stunning technical and visual effects to bring the story to life. Part of the design revision includes making the orchestra more visible to the audience, guaranteed to make this a treat for all senses!

What is the story?

Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the center of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night. Sent on a mission to save the Queen's captured daughter Pamina with a magic flute and bumbling servant Papageno, Prince Tamino's trials have just begun as he loses his heart to the Princess and comes to realize that the nature of good and evil in this odd place may not be as clear as they first appear.
