W.A. MOZART . THE MAGIC FLUTE

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.
