The Magic Flute

This event has now passed. For information on upcoming events, click here.

The Magic Flute is a brand new show created by The Classic Buskers and magician Neil Henry, based (somewhat loosely) on Mozart’s timeless masterpiece Die Zauberflöte

  • magic – seemingly impossible tricks and illusions conjured up by award -winning magician Neil Henry
  • flutes and panpipes – lots of them – blown by the virtuosic flautist Michael Copley
  • piano accordion – squeezed by the mercurial Ian Moore

Join the bird-catcher Papageno as he goes on a magical musical journey – through fire and water, meeting snakes, bears, wolves, flying boys, the King of the Sun and a very wicked Queen. The show includes the famous Birdcatcher’s Song, “Das Klinget So Herrlich” with an orchestra of bells made up of children from the audience. You will also hear the famous “Queen of the Night” in a version guaranteed never to be forgotten! You will be amused, bemused, entertained and more importantly actively involved in this very original take on Mozart’s masterpiece. This is musical treat for all the family – full of surprises, wonderful music and lots of laughs.

Suitable for all ages
