Information

Magic opera on a floor stage

The most wondrous of all operas in a celebrated production by the theatre magician Simon McBurney. He brings to life the magic of theatre with deceptively simple means. Openly produced visual projections and sound effects enliven the scenery. Sheets of music transform into birds. The emanating lightness and emotional depth of this production have been celebrated and acclaimed throughout half of Europe. Swiss soprano Regula Mühlemann makes her Basel debut as Pamina.

Simon McBurney’s ‹The Magic Flute› is the best production I’ve ever witnessed of Mozart’s last opera, and the perfect introduction for a ‹Magic Flute› virgin.
