As Perth Theatre is closed for refurbishment ETO will be in the Perth Concert Hall this year. There will be full production, orchestra, set, costumes...It is going to be exciting to use the orchestra pit for the first time. Don't miss it.

The Magic Flute has enchanted music and theatre lovers of all ages for hundreds of years. With charm and wit, it tells the story of a terrifying and joyful journey in pursuit of love, wisdom and happiness. From the stratospheric arias of the Queen of the Night, through the jolly folk tunes of Papageno the Birdcatcher, to the profound music of Sarastro, leader of the enlightened ones, it is a full expression of Mozart’s musical and dramatic genius.ETO is delighted to be reviving Liam Steel’s 2009 production of Mozart’s final masterpiece.
“English Touring Opera puts on an absolutely gorgeous production of The Magic Flute… the array of costumes could have come from Vivienne Westwood’s catwalk.” Daily Telegraph “As good and mad as opera gets. If you want to win over a disbeliever to the magic of opera, take them to English Touring Opera’s visually stunning Magic Flute.”Observer
There will be a pre-opera talk in the Norie Miller Room at 18.30. Please book a free ticket in advance from the Box Office.
Revival, sung in English
Touring with a live orchestra
