Watch The Magic Flute
See our Festival 2019 production of The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) LIVE in cinemas and online
This new production by the renowned directing/design duo Barbe & Doucet promises to take a fresh and playful look at the opera’s troublesome gender politics. Leading British bass Brindley Sherratt stars as Sarastro alongside exciting young singers including Caroline Wettergreen, Sofia Fomina and Björn Bürger.
‘Director-and-designer team Renaud Doucet and André Barbe have captured perfectly the artifice that is a large part of Manon’s charm’ – The Guardian (Manon)
‘Barbe and Doucet’s production plays up the humour and vitality of Puccini’s opera’ – The Guardian (La Bohème)
