Events - Draíocht

Enchanting and evocative, Mozart’s final masterpiece The Magic Flute, is a lyrical love story, set against an atmospheric backdrop of fantasy and mischief. This profound but light hearted tale is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages combining moments of high comedy with intrigue, kidnap, and elemental trials. Opera Theatre Company is delighted to celebrate 25 years of touring opera throughout Ireland with this magical and uplifting opera. The sublime score ripples with irresistible charm; from the stratospheric arias of the Queen of the Night, to the glorious melodies of Papageno, both reflecting Mozart’s dramatic genius and enthusiasm for life. Sung in English with Music Direction by Brenda Hurley, this production is directed by Annilese Miskimmon and designed by Nicky Shaw, with lighting design by Sinead McKenna.

“A terrific night’s entertainment… this company is driven by ideas, takes risks, and always a fresh and interesting approach” Sunday Business Post

 Early Bird: €22 (book before 31 Dec 2011)
