Part-pantomime, part-opera, Kit Hesketh-Harvey’s new production relives the music and triumphant opening night in 1791 of 'The Magic Flute'. Lofty divas and low comedians flourish. Watching closely are the shadowy forces of Freemasonry. And the composer, Mozart, fears he is being poisoned. This is a delight for opera connoisseurs and newcomers alike.
