Irish National Opera presents Mozart The Magic Flute

17 May 2019
Tickets: €15-€80

Mozart’s enchanting final opera. His most popular stage work. A timeless moral tale in a world of clashing cultures. 

Sung in German with English Surtitles

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.
