Time Out says
Avant-garde theatre director Simon McBurney's take on Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' astonished audiences with its realistic magic effects and rich, otherworldly atmosphere. Now it's back at the ENO for a fresh revival. It follows Prince Tamino and his birdcatcher friend on their journey to rescue a lost princess, with the help of some enchanted musical instruments. The cast includes Lucy Crowe, Rupert Charlesworth, and Thomas Oliemans. Ben Gernon conducts.
