The Magic Flute
Irish National Opera presents The Magic Flute
Mozart’s enchanting final opera. His most popular stage work, a timeless moral tale in a world of clashing cultures.
Trials of courage and love, a journey that encounters serpents and magic interventions. The dark realm of the vocally virtuosic Queen of the Night struggles against the judgement and reason of Sarastro, the High Priest of Isis and Osiris. In between, a separated couple cope with rites and rituals, and Papageno, a humble birdcatcher, searches for a wife.
Starring Anna Devin (Soprano), Nick Pritchard (Tenor) , Gavan Ring (Baritone) and Audrey Luna (Soprano).
Sung in German with English Surtitles
Presented by Irish National Opera, in partnership with the Irish Chamber Orchestra
...with a voice as liquid and sparkling as the best champagne, this... Irish soprano showered us with vivid characterisations, kaleldoscopic hues and the brightest of coloratura flourishes
Gavan Ring seized every opportunity to demonstrate the stylish vocal allure that has to underpin Giovanni’s sexual pulling power...”
