Mag­i­cal jour­ney with Mozart

Stirling Observer - - REVIEWS -

The Royal Opera’s pro­duc­tion of The Magic Flute opens the Live Cin­ema sea­son 2017/18 at the Mac­robert Arts Cen­tre onWed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20 at 7.15pm.

Mozart’s pop­u­lar work with its fa­mous Queen of the Night aria de­liv­ers a mag­i­cal ad­ven­ture through mys­ti­cism, en­chant­ment, love and trick­ery – with some won­der­fully hu­mor­ous mo­ments – through an ex­tra­or­di­nary blend of com­edy, philo­soph­i­cal se­ri­ous­ness and sheer magic.

The Magic Flute fol­lows the hand­some, young prince Tamino as he sets out to res­cue the beau­ti­ful Pam­ina at the re­quest of The Queen of the Night. With only his magic flute and cheer­ful com­pan­ion Pa­pageno to help him, Tamino sets out, and soon finds him­self on a quest search­ing for love, en­light­en­ment and wis­dom.

An en­core screen­ing will take place on Sun­day, Septem­ber 24 at 2pm.

The next pro­duc­tion in the ROH Live Cin­ema sea­son is Puc­cini’s opera La Bo­hème on Oc­to­ber 3 and 4 at 7.15pm.
