About: A Magic Flute Freely adapted by Peter Brook, Franck Krawczyk and Marie-Hélène Estienne

Glimpse Mozart’s wicked smile, ready to play tricks on us and catch us unawares in this vivacious new interpretation of the composer’s timeless opera.

Staging that is beautiful in its simplicity puts heavy and solemn symbolism in the background and allows Mozart’s brilliantly effervescent music, at first delicate and tender, then quirky and humorous, to take centre stage. A talented ensemble of young singers led by a single pianist fill the score with new life, energy and colour.

A Magic Flute follows the Bouffes du Nord’s unexpected approach to opera, as seen in La Tragédie de Carmen and Impressions de Pelléas.

Peter Brook returns to the Barbican with C.I.C.T / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord following 11 and 12 in February 2010.
