This event has now passed.

First performed in Vienna on September 30 1791, The Magic Flute was Mozart's last opera before his premature death two months later. A celebration of true love conquering all, this opera features off-beat, supernatural characters and Masonic rituals. The Magic Flute tells the tale of Prince Tamino's quest to rescue the Queen of the Night's daughter Pamina, however this adaptation by the 1927 Theatre Company reimagines the tale with Tamino borne aloft by moths, Pamina trapped in a snow globe, and the Queen of the Night as a giant spider—and that's just the beginning. This blend of opera and animation comes courtesy of 1927 and Komische Opera, and is the show to see this summer.
