Mozart’s masterpiece The Magic Flute is one of the most performed operas in the world. Its divine music and magical story full of twists and turns have endeared this opera to a public of all ages since it was created in 1791.
This will be Robert Lepage’s first time directing The Magic Flute: the internationally renowned Quebec director will bring to it all the talent, spirit, and inventiveness he is known for. There is no doubt that the opera’s fantastical world will inspire Mr. Lepage with innovative ideas that would have certainly delighted Mozart himself.
