The English National Opera brings Mozart’s timeless tale back to London. The Magic Flute tickets are now available!

Prince Tamino and the bird-catcher Papageno find themselves drawn together on a journey to rescue Pamina, but who does she need rescuing from? Guided on their quest by three spirits and with the aid of magical instruments, our heroes struggle to overcome the trials set before them and find happiness and true love.

On the heels of his success with The Encounter at the Barbican Simon McBurney makes his return to ENO with his critically acclaimed version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. The cast features Lucy Crowe and Rupert Charlesworth as Pamina and Tamino, respectively. They are joined by Thomas Oliemans as Papageno and company favourite Brindley Sherratt as Sarastro. Julia Bauer’s coloratura brings life to the manipulative Queen of the Night and  Principal Guest at the BBC Philharmonic, conductor Ben Gernon makes his ENO debut.

The Magic Flute tickets are now available, book your tickets now for the best seats at the best prices. Don't miss this incredible production or the rest of the ENO season.

Emmanuelle Arbouch16th April

This opera has a bit of everything. It is funny, modern, beautiful, creative with lots of unexpected moments. Great for the whole family. It was my 2 boys (aged 12 and 14) first opera and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Brilliant.

Pilar Correia Dungworth12th April

Amazing production, singing and orchestra! BRAVO!

Susan Worley10th April

Greatly enjoyed performance and clever set and visuals. Somewhat annoyed by the £15 added to face value of tickets, booked on Coliseum website.

Pamela Fulton10th April

The music and singing were both lovely. The production just awful, so awful that it ruined the entire evening for me.

Susan Carol Sallon10th April

Very unusual and innovative. A refreshing change from the traditional production

Terence Mugridge7th April

As a first time opera goers, we were blown away by the whole experience ! The front of house staff were courteous and helpful. It was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon and we were able to forget the trials and tribulations of the past week in a truly wonderful performance by an excellent cast. It was almost possible to forget about Brexit for a while -until we left and rejoined the real world. We will be making opera a habit !! Thank you so much for a fantastic afternoon.

Thoroughly enjoyable production...we thought the set was ingenious, especially the use of filmed special effects, although sometimes the raised section of the stage masked the singing. All the cast were excellent as was the orchestra, and it was good to see so many children in the audience, presumably taking advantage of the ENO’s free tickets for under-18s.

These tickets were purchased as a gift - but were not given, due to our own previous experience. Balcony access was via. a crowded/blocked lobby staircase, with toilets at the top of a further crowded/blocked staircase (poor design), £10 for wine served in a mug, tepid coffee served from a flask, salmon sandwiches displayed under a fan heater, auditorium seats too short for adults. Meanwhile, we were being filmed, without our permission Overall, a pretty poor customer experience..

Elisa Mazza7th April

An Amazing Play, filled with surprises, enjoyable, funny, incredibly well played, sung and the orchestra was great. The sounds effects, the drawings on the screen... I had the greatest time in months. Hope to be able to bring my teens soon

Michaela Bonwick7th April

Excellent performance! I struggled to hear the singers over the orchestra occasionally.

Aurelia 7th April

We loved this beautiful contemporary production of the Magic Flute. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed the enchanting work of Michael Levine on the stage design that made the opera accessible to her too.
