The Magic Flute trailer
"Conceptually deft, musically satisfying and consistently entertaining ... ETO's Magic Flute is a winner." WhatsOnStage
"ETO's Magic Flute outshines its more expensive and overblown rivals" ★★★★ Telegraph
"Brings a zing to Mozart's well-loved score"
★★★★ Sunday Express
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.
UK tour: March-May 2014. For more information visit www.englishtouringopera.org.uk
