The Magic Flute

A co-production of NIDA and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music
Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart  
Libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder
Conducted by Stephen Mould
Directed by Clemence Williams
Venue: The Parade Theatre
Fri 21 - Sat 29 Oct 2022

Mozart’s final opera transports us to a fantastical world of serpents, princesses, trials and mysteries. Good and evil battle, and truth and resolution are elusive.

We invite you to experience a world that feels like 1984 meets Alice in Wonderland meets The Wizard of Oz. Tamino, a prince, has lost his way. He journeys down a deep rabbit hole in search of his true love, Pamina, imprisoned in the Temple of The Sun. Together they navigate the trials imposed by the mysterious Sarastro and the trickery of The Queen of the Night and her cronies. A fairy tale for the ages.

Conducted by Stephen Mould and directed by Clemence Williams, this production teams Sydney Conservatorium of Music performers with NIDA technical theatre and stage management, costume, props, and scenic construction students to take you on a journey into a dream world where we hope we may find fulfillment.

*This production contains suicidal ideation, loud noises, smoke & haze effects and strobe lighting effects.
