The Magic Flute

The Magic Flute 2 © De Nederlandse Opera, Matthias Baus


Simon McBurney’s new production of The Magic Flute
is a darkly funny, dramatic and highly visual interpretation of Mozart’s theatrical genius. In McBurney’s interpretation, music casts a visible as well as audible spell, with the orchestra on view alongside breathtaking cinematographic projections, re-imagining Mozart’s rites of passage fairytale. Building on ENO’s co-producing relationship with De Nederlandse Opera, The Magic Flute opened in December 2012 to great critical acclaim in Amsterdam. McBurney’s production received five-star reviews from the Dutch
press: “a feast for the eyes and the ears” (Het Parool) and “Delicious!” (Trouw).

The Magic Flute continues the relationship between English National Opera and theatre company Complicite, who are celebrating their thirtieth anniversary this year. McBurney returns to ENO following his operatic debut and critical-success of A Dog’s Heart in 2010 (nominated for
a 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Opera Production). The collaboration highlights ENO’s commitment to producing opera that is fresh and relevant for contemporary audiences by working with talent from across the creative industries.
