Mozart’s comic opera will transport you to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and starry skies.
David McVicar’s spectacular production returns for its tenth revival on the Royal Opera House Main Stage, transporting you to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and starry skies. This spellbinding setting provides a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score.
McVicar’s production embraces both the seriousness and the comedy of Mozart’s opera, telling a timeless story of one man’s search for wisdom and virtue. With an enduring love story at its heart, complex villains and an unforgettable comic sidekick in Papageno, The Magic Flute weaves an enchanting tale from start to finish.
Since having to close the Royal Opera House in March 2020, we have lost £3 in every £5 of our income. Our audiences are at the heart of what we do and we urgently need your help. Please support the Royal Opera House community today and help secure the future of ballet and opera.
