Indiana Jones Meets The Magic Flute

Opera Australia embarks on a two-year odyssey across Regional Victoria engaging audiences with an ingenious rebranding of the classic tale of a hero in search of adventure. They’ve given Mozart’s The Magic Flute an Indiana Jones makeover!

Director, Michael Gow and Designer, Robert Kemp have maintained the music and storyline of the traditional opera, but transposed it into 1930s Egypt with clever references to films like The Mummy and Indiana Jones. This new adaptation is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Even better, each town the tour visits will give local primary-school aged children an opportunity to perform in the show while secondary school students get a chance to audition for a student scholarship with Opera Australia. Conductor and Regional Children’s Chorusmaster, Alex Pringle, will visit towns in advance to select talented young people.

Opera Australia’s Artistic Director, Lyndon Terracini is on a mission to get Australian audiences to love opera. With innovations as original, funny and inventive as this, he’s likely to succeed. See this captivating new production of The Magic Flute at Frankston Arts Centre on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:30 pm.  Bookings on 9784 1060 or
