Archived: The Magic Flute

NZ Opera

A celebration of true love conquering all, Mozart's The Magic Flute is the opera that has it all - drama, comedy, magic, good conquering evil and of course, the most sublime music.

This fairytale opera follows our hero, Prince Tamino as he seeks to save his beloved Pamina from the clutches of her evil mother, Queen of Night.

Suitable for the whole family, this magical new production uses puppetry to bring Mozart's mythical tale to life.

New Zealanders Emma Fraser (Pamina) and Wade Kernot (Sarastro) join a cast of international singers making their New Zealand debuts; American tenor Randall Bills (Tamino), Australian Samuel Dundas (Papageno) and British soprano Ruth Jenkins-Róbertsson as Queen of Night.

Brought together by the inspired direction of Sara Brodie and conducted by New Zealand Opera's Director of Music Wyn Davies, The Magic Flutesoars towards the sublime. From the first rousing chords of the overture, to the resplendent final chorus, this is life-affirming opera at its most powerful.

Accompanied by Orchestra Wellington and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. Featuring the Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus.
