The Magic Flute
Drum Theatre and Opera Australia, have been in partnership for many years, bringing world premieres of touring operas to Dandenong.
In 2014, we are proud to announce the brand new, fully-staged production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute will premiere at Drum Theatre accompanied by a live chamber orchestra, fabulous 1930s costumes and a vibrant cast of Australia’s leading singers.
The Magic Flute is a quest for wisdom and true love. Taking inspiration from the movies, this new adaptation by Director Michael Gow and Designer Robert Kemp is set as a rollicking adventure in 1930s Egypt.
There will be mummies, hieroglyphic puzzles and a good few laughs along the way. From the Queen of the Night’s demented showstoppers, to achingly beautiful arias, to simple ballads that wrap you up in warmth and charm, there is something for everyone.
Prepare to be enchanted, when this new production of The Magic Flute comes to Drum Theatre!
Show times: 160 mins, with interval
Location: Drum Theatre, Cnr Lonsdale and Walker Street, Dandenong
