The Magic Flute

This weekend Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute will be appearing at The Albert hall for three shows only.

Pack a picnic supper – anything from a plate of simple canapés to an elaborate eight-course banquet – to share at candlelit tables before the show. All shows are BYO beverages – just make sure you pack your own glasses and utensils as well.

Producer Carl Rafferty has assembled an exceptional cast featuring local, national and international singers. Slovenian soprano Jerica Steklasa arrived in Australia last week to play the role of Princess Pamina. The role of Prince Tamino will be shared by two wonderful and lyrical tenors – James Adams from New Zealand and Julian Goncalves from Portugal.

The Magic Flute will also be Canberra’s first opportunity to see the new Director of the ANU School of Music in action. Professor Peter Tregear is conducting the orchestra.

Tickets are $60 for a seat at a candlelit table (up to 9 people per table), and Jim Murphy’s Market Cellars is offering a complimentary wine package with purchases of six or more tickets.

For the first time ever, Opera by Candlelight is offering gallery seats to the show for $30 – and you can still bring your own supper and beverages.

The Magic Flute is at The Albert Hall this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 3-5 May. Doors open at 5.30pm and the show commences at 7pm. Tickets are available by emailing carlrafferty@bigpond.com.
