Groupies get down with high culture at Opera Australia’s production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Taking place at the Sydney Opera House, Mozart’s two-act opera takes the audience on a journey that includes queens, dancing bears, a nine-metre serpent and hundreds of props. Director Julie Taymor – who has also directed The Lion King – has concocted her production to appeal to the child inside each audience member.
Under the leadership of Craig Hassall and artistic director Lyndon Terracini, Opera Australia is dedicated to making rich cultural experiences available to curious and passionate Sydneysiders. Staging over 600 performances each year, they assemble productions of works by masters such as Mozart, Georges Bizet and Puccini. Aside from timeless classics, Opera Australia also organises newly commissioned works and organises events for primary schools in New South Wales and Victoria.
