W.A. MOZART

The Magic Flute

As young prince Tamino undertakes a quest to rescue the Princess Pamina, he learns hard truths about the real world: that evil can appear to be good, that heartbreak and joy can come hand in hand, and that true love can be tested.

With an enchanting blend of visual wizardry and whimsical comedy, Matthew Wild’s dream-like staging in Michael Mitchell’s poetic designs gives new expression to Mozart’s fable about the power of music. Protected by the magic of their enchanted flute, Tamino and Pamina discover that only music can lead them “through death’s dark night”.

A young cast of outstanding singers from CTO and the University of Cape Town Opera School usher in summer with Mozart’s most joyful and uplifting masterpiece.
