The ancient tombs of the Pharaohs hide many secrets. Will Tamino the daring archaeologist find them? Will it be Papageno, the zany ornithologist? Or will the forces of evil crack the code, find the treasure and get the girl? Find out when Opera Australia presents a ripping yarn for all the family. The Magic Flute is a quest for wisdom and true love. Taking inspiration from the movies, director Michael Gow and designer Robert Kemp have set their new production of Mozart's final work for the stage as a rollicking adventure in 1930s Egypt. There will be mummies, hieroglyphic puzzles and a good few laughs along the way, but is it opera' Mozart didn't care, and nor should you. He was far more concerned with firing his audience's imagination through the power of music. Prepare to be enchanted, when this new, fully-staged production of The Magic Flute comes to Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre, complete with fabulous 1930s costumes, a chamber orchestra and a vibrant cast of singers. Sung in English, performed with chamber orchestra.
