THE MAGIC FLUTE
Filled with emotions, Glyndebourne returns to cinemas with three productions from its 2019 Festival - painted in bold musical colours, magic is sprinkled through a season that also gathers together some classic operatic fairy tales.
Mozart’s most magical comedy of The Magic Flute returns to Glyndebourne for the first time in over a decade. This new production by the renowned directing/design duo Barbe & Douce promises to take a fresh and playful look at the opera’s troublesome gender politics. Leading British bass Brindley Sherratt stars as Sarastro alongside exciting young singers including Caroline Wettergreen, Sofia Fomina and Björn Bürger.
"Director-and-designer team Renaud Doucet and André Barbe have captured perfectly the artifice that is a large part of Manon's charm." The Guardian (Manon)
"Barbe and Doucet’s production plays up the humour and vitality of Puccini’s opera" The Guardian (La Bohème)
